Following Taiwanese singer-actor Jay Chou’s foray into Hollywood in 2011 with movie The Green Hornet, there have been news that the 35-year-old will take on his second project there – Now You See Me 2.
Released last year, the magic-themed thriller Now You See Me film starring Isla Fischer, Woody Harrelson and Jeremy Eisenberg was a box office hit. And it is believed that Jay will be showing off his magic tricks, which is coincidentally his hobby, in the second installment slated to release in mid-2016.
The original cast will remain, with the addition of Jay, Daniel Radcliffe from Harry Potterseries and female lead of Masters of Sex Lizzy Caplan.
As the multi-hyphenate has promised to tie the knot with his girlfriend Hannah Quinlivan by January next year, it is said that they may register their marriage overseas first before holding a banquet due to potential conflicts with the filming schedule.
