3. Isla Fisher Almost Drowned While Filming Now You See Me
Isla Fisher told Chelsea Handler on "Chelsea Lately" that she almost drowned while filming her swimming tank scene. Isla joked that she couldn't understand why Tom Cruise doesn't have a stunt double. She made light of the story saying, "All I kept thinking about was picturing myself having an autopsy later, all bloated and gross in a swimming costume. Who wants to die in a swimming costume?"
2. Guess Who Was Originally Cast
It was rumored that Jake Gyllenhaal was up for the role of Mark Ruffalo's character but declined to do the film. Likewise Olivia Wilde was offered a role in the film, and Amanda Seyfried was considered for the role that eventually went to Isla.
1. Michael Caine Sleeps on Set
Apparently, Michael Caine was locked in his dressing room for a whole night during filming. Supposedly, he fell asleep after shooting a scene and didn't hear the director call wrap for the day and the crew pack up and leave. It was assumed that Michael had gone home, so the set was locked. He wasn't discovered until the morning when someone heard him crying for help.
