Last year we saw/heard the pulse-pounding collaboration between Joe Wright and The Chemical Brothers for his action thriller Hanna and now the group is set to hit the bigscreen again. The Playlist reports that the British electronic duo will score Louis Leterrier‘s currently shooting heist film Now You See Me.
Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Common, Michael Caine and Dave Franco make up the cast for the film which follows a group of high-class robbers that do what they do best all around the world, all while using illusions to pull it off.
This concept certainly lends itself to the high-octane sound The Chemical Brothers are known to deliver. I can just imagine the music they wrote for the escape scene in Hanna, one of the memorable, and imagine the possibilities when it comes to a globe-trotting heist film like this one. This isn’t the only theatrical gig the duo have a hand in, as they also have their own concert documentary Don’t Think (trailer here), which will hopefully see a stateside release this year.
Now You See Me arrives on January 18th, 2013.
