The film will follow a magician after he breaks up with his longtime stage partner, a famous but jaded Vegas magician fights for relevance when a new, "hip" street magician appears on the scene. The Everybody Loves Raymond star will play a supporting role as Steve Carell's accountant, whom he fires.
Steve Carell will play the magic man who is dethroned by a hipper illusionist doing dangerous tricks. He breaks up with his partner and must find a way to rediscover his love for magic. Jim Carrey, James Gandolfini, Olivia Wilde, and Steve Buscemi have all signed on already.
Production is scheduled to start in January 2012.
