Paul Giamatti has been cast in "The Illusionist."
Variety reports Giamatti is in the process of finalizing his deal to join Edward Norton on the film.
Norton plays a magician in turn-of-the-century Vienna who falls in love with a woman well above his social standing. When she becomes engaged to a prince, the magician uses his powers to win her back and undermine the stability of the royal house of Vienna.
Filming is due to begin in April in Prague.
