Olivia Wilde and Steve Buscemi Join Magician Comedy BURT WONDERSTONE
Hmmm this and that other flick with Magicians pulling a heist both sound like fun. Apparently magicians are trying to be the new vampires/zombies/______ .e magician comedy Burt Wonderstone has found its female lead, and is getting a boost from a fantastic character actor. After mulling over a number of actresses that reportedly included Sarah Silverman, Judy Greer, Jessica Biel, and Michelle Monaghan, THR reports that Olivia Wilde has won the lead female role opposite Steve Carell and Jim Carrey. The film centers on a Las Vegas magician (Carell) who breaks up with his partner and is then upstaged by a hipper magician (Carrey) doing dangerous and crowd-drawing tricks.
THR reports that Steve Buscemi is also in talks to join the cast as Carell’s former partner. Don Scardino (30 Rock) is directing, with a script by Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (and a polish by Jason Reitman). James Gandolfini is also set to star as a Vegas casino owner. While I had been pulling for Greer to land the female lead, Wilde is by no means a bad choice and Buscemi is a much-welcomed addition. Production on Burt Wonderstone is set to begin in January.
At the risk of incurring another bout of Naysay's wrath...
Review: ‘Tower Heist’ Is A Slickly Made, Socially Conscious Romp > The Playlist
Most “serious” film people tend to write off Ratner, but he’s a consummate entertainer who, while never striking for serious art, does well in the incredibly specific field of star-driven action comedies. (There’s a reason why he’s wanted to make a “Beverly Hills Cop” sequel for so long – because he’d be perfect for it). “Tower Heist” might be his most pleasurable film to date, one stocked with lively performances, occasionally thrilling set pieces, and a surge of populist outrage that makes it more timely and resonant than it has any right being. Sure, at the end of the day it’s just a silly little Hollywood movie. But for those 104 minutes, in a Manhattan theater, the people were riled up and ready to occupy. Until the lights came up and they had to throw away their candy wrappers. [B]
