Bear Grylls Reveals ‘Man Vs. Wild’ Adventure with Jake Gyllenhaal, "Now You See Me"

"Presently, Bear is gearing up for more “Man vs. Wild” on Discovery, and he confirmed that one of the upcoming episodes would feature a fellow in-shape star – Jake Gyllenhaal.

“He trains hard as well, you know. He’s meant to be the fittest man in Hollywood so I was a little bit nervous taking him on a ‘Man vs. Wild,’ but he was incredible,” Bear said of the episode, which is currently being kept under wraps. While the reality star wasn’t able to reveal where he went with Jake – rumors on the web suggest it was to Iceland – he did admit it was a tough adventure.

“We were both stretched to our limit, there’s no doubt”, Bear laughed". Source:

"According to Variety Leterrier is working to cast Jesse Eisenberg, Jake Gyllenhaal and Melanie Laurent in Now You See Me, a heist film about magicians who "pull off daring bank heists during their performances, showering the profits on their audience."Yeah, I have no idea how that would work either, but the idea of seeing Jesse Eisenberg trying to do it is so bizarre I can't help but want to see it.

Eisenberg is only in early negotiations for the lead part, while Gyllenhaal and Laurent only have offers, which they could easily turn down. When we first wrote about his project back in February we had heard that the central characters would in fact be the FBI investigators tracking down the rogue magicians, which means we'll probably see Eisenberg only solving crimes, not pulling a rabbit plus 50 gold bars out of a hat. Disappointing? Sure. But it sounds like there will be plenty more craziness to be entertained by in the movie, which Leterrier has planned as his post-Titans film.

While Gyllenhaal has been known to seek out these kind of action-y roles, and Laurent is so new in her career no choice could be seen as unexpected, Eisenberg seems to be really stretching here". Source:
