The trailer for the sequel to surprise hit "Now You See Me" entitled "Now You See Me 2" has been released.

It was formerly entitled "Now You See Me: The Second Act" in reference to the magician narrative. That was not the only change-Isla Fisher is no longer with the cast and Lizzy Caplan of "Masters of Sex" fame takes her place.

According to Movies.com, Isla Fisher left the project because of her pregnancy, which is why Caplan joined the cast. However, it is not a recasting as one might assume.

Caplan will play a new character named Lula, according to Cinema Blend. Thus, it is speculated that part of the plot would deal with how she became one of the "four horsemen."

There is also another addition to the team. A very familiar wizard will now be part of the magician movie. Daniel Radcliffe, at the risk of getting even more Harry Potter references, is in the movie. Watch the trailer to find out if he has an actual wand.

The official movie synopsis was also released:

"One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public's adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface in "Now You See Me 2" only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet."

Aside from Caplan, the other horsemen are Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco. Other members of the stellar cast include Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine (it was revealed that Daniel Radcliffe is his son) and Jay Chou.

Jon M. Chou takes over directorial duties from Louis Leterrier. It was also confirmed that another sequel is in the works.
