“Now You See Me” Returns to the Lower East Side this Week
One month ago, we wrote the following regarding the forthcoming feature Now You See Me – “a movie takeover is in effect today on the Lower East Side.” It rings true again, as the production will maintain a week-long residence near the corner of Orchard and Broome Streets. Signage currently hanging in the immediate vicinity indicates that “pre-rigging” begins later today and tomorrow, with actual filming commencing on Thursday. This neighborhood hijacking is somewhat reminiscent of the Date Night invasion in the same location just a few years ago.

Now You See Me is a heist thriller featuring an all-star cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, and Michael Caine. Summit Entertainment is behind the film, which “pits a crack FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists, who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances, showering the profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.”
