GK Films -- the production company behind 'The Town,' 'The Tourist' and 'Rango,' as well as the upcoming 'Dark Shadows' and Martin Scorsese's 'Hugo' -- is tackling a graphic novel adaptation by picking up the film rights to 'The Vault,' an Image comic book written by Sam Sarkar, an executive at Johnny Depp's Infinitum Nihil production company (which has a deal with GK). According to The Hollywood Reporter, the underwater sci-fi story centers on a group of divers who, off the coast of Nova Scotia, uncover a sarcophagus with unusual remains and inadvertently unleash an ancient evil. Vault is a three-issue mini-series with the first issue hitting stores this week.

Mark Ruffalo and Amanda Seyfried are in negotiations to join the cast of Louis Leterrier's 'Now You See Me,' a heist film starring Jesse Eisenberg and Melanie Laurent. According to Variety, the story pits a team of FBI agents in a game of cat and mouse against a squad of the world's greatest illusionists, who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances, showering the profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law. Ruffalo would play the main FBI agent and Seyfried would play a technician who helps the illusionists with their props. Summit Entertainment is releasing the film.
