Haute Event: ‘Now You See Me’ Stars Mark Ruffalo, Chris Browning Film at the Golden Gate

Mark Ruffalo films "Now You See Me" at the Golden Gate.

On Tuesday night, actors Mark Ruffalo and Chris Browning headed to downtown Las Vegas for a night at the Golden Gate — Las Vegas’ original casino — to film a scene for their upcoming movie “Now You See Me.”

The movie, scheduled to hit theaters in early 2013, pits a crack FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against a super team 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.

The cast and crew worked into the early morning hours filming a dramatic chase scene through Golden Gate’s vintage casino floor darting through slot machines and winding around the blackjack and poker tables eventually spilling out onto Fremont Street, where a massive crowd of onlookers enjoyed the show.

Ruffalo and Browning made their work fun by posing with employees, including Golden Gate’s signature dancing dealers who will be seen in the movie and even recruited Golden Gate co-owner Derek Stevens as an extra.

Earlier on Tuesday, actors Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco were spotted at Aria filming scenes on the casino floor and the main porte cochere for the film.
