It seems with each passing day, Louis Leterrier again raises the stakes on his high concept heist flick "Now You See Me." With a cast that already includes Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco, it's now getting a dose of English class.

We've confirmed the report from Moviehole that Michael Caine is joining the film. Penned by Boaz Yakin (”Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” “Fresh”) and newcomer Edward Ricourt, the story follows 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 and shower the profits onto their audiences. We've learned that Caine will play the role of Arthur Tressler, the magicians' sponsor.

There are still more bits and pieces to come on the film so stay tuned. But its certainly gearing up to be one of the more intriguing projects on the horizon. "Now You See Me" will hit theaters on January 18, 2013.
