Looks like magic is in the air once again for Daniel Radcliffe. The 25 year old actor who first became famous portraying the child wizard Harry Potter is now reportedly up for a role in “Now You See Me 2,” the sequel to the 2013 magician-themed movie “Now You See Me.”

According to Deadline, Radcliffe may be joining the ensemble cast for the Jon Chu-directed film, which includes many of the original cast members from the first film including Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Michael Caine, and David Franco.

Radcliffe’s character, according to the report, would be the son of Caine’s duped insurance magnate character, though it’s uncertain if he would be joining forces with the group of renegade magicians or be out for revenge against them. The film is set to be released on June 10, 2016 so it looks like we’ll have to wait until then to find out.
