Originally, Kevin Kline was expected to play the magician, which (for me at least) gave the movie most of its potential appeal -- a pissed-off, over-the-hill magician Kevin Kline could only be a wonderful thing. Unfortunately, however, those negotiations seems to have fallen through, and John Malkovich has been brought on board to play the role. (He's apparently everyone's #1 second choice at the moment.) Needless to say, this is a casting change that completely alters the feel of the movie -- it'll be interesting to see how it turns out.
