The feature film "The Illusionist" is scheduled to open, in D.C. at least, on August 25, 2006, according to early news reports. This film is a romantic thriller set in 1900 in Vienna, and the movie is written and directed by Neil Burger. The film starts Edward Norton, who grew up in Columbia, Md., as a stage magician who battles a prince played by Rufus Sewell and a police inspector played by Paul Giamatti. The magician and the prince are attracted to a duchess played by Jessica Biel. Larger battles ensue, and the story builds from there. Should be interesting, and fun.

It's based on Steven Millhausershort's story "Eisenheim the Illusionist". Haven't seen the director/screenwriter's only other film, The Assistant, but I've been told this one is pretty good and Giamatti, as always, steals the show.

Yes, I just read the article in my local newspaper about it.
I always enjoyed Edward Norton's acting.
