Masters Of Sex star Lizzy Caplan is in final negotiations to play the female lead in the John M. Chu-directed Now You See Me 2 for Summit/Lionsgate. It’s a big opportunity for her, and she will replace Isla Fisher, who dropped out because she is pregnant. Caplan next stars in The Interview opposite Seth Rogen and James Franco, which opens Christmas, and she just wrapped Xmas with Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, which Sony just dated for a November 25, 2015 release. She returns to work for the third season of Showtime’s Masters Of Sex in the spring, starring opposite Michael Sheen. She is repped by WME and Mosaic.
