Jacobs joins Adam DeVine ("Pitch Perfect") and Jeffrey Tambor ("Transparent") in the film, which centers on a retired magician (played by DeVine) who heads back to the magic camp he used to attend as a counselor in hopes of getting his career back on track. Tambor will play his mentor, camp owner Roy, while Jacobs's will play the protagonist's former partner
Steve Martin was originally attached to star as the mentor, according to Variety; he even wrote a previous draft of the screenplay before leaving the project. However, the most recent draft was penned by Dan Gregor and Doug Man. Mark Waters ("Mean Girls") is attached to direct.
Jacobs comes to the project with a lot of comedy experience under her belt. She played Britta Perry on the acclaimed sitcom "Community" for six seasons and went on to star in the Netflix series "Love," which is set to return for a second season. Her credits also include the upcoming "Life of the Party," alongside the likes of Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, and Julie Bowen.
We can't wait to see what other tricks "Magic Camp" has up its sleeve.
