|What do you do when you think a magician’s a serial killer? Well, if you’re the folks behind Magic Man, you get an incredible terror hottie like Bai Ling around and you try to hunt him down.
Granted, I have not heard anything like this one lately, so I’m willing to give Magic Man a lot of benefit of the doubt. And the idea of taking a magician—like David Blaine or Criss Angel—and making them a serial killer is definitely one worth wondering about (“Gee, officer, what murder weapon? All I have here is an entire ROW OF HANDKERCHIEFS!” “Damn magical serial killers…” “Oh, wait, what’s this? Why, the murder weapon is BEHIND YOUR DEPUTY’S EAR!”), although it may wind up too original for its own good. We’ve all been there at least once, haven’t we? A movie that’s so very original that it ends up being total nonsense?
Magic Man is still in shooting, so we likely won’t get a look for some time to come, but when we do, I’ll bet it’s going to be wild.
