Criss Angel to play Mandrake the Magician!

The popular Illusionist is on board to play the comic book character!
"I've just signed on to do a movie which I'll be shooting at the end of this year called 'Mandrake,'" Angel said.

"The film is based on the comic book strip. It's gonna kind of be like a kind of cool realm of 'The Crow' but different of Mandrake the magician coming to life. I'm designing and creating the visual effects for that, as well as going to be acting in it. So that's a very exciting prospect that I'm looking forward to do."

Comparing how magic and illusions have been portrayed in past movies, he added, "I know that the 'Mandrake' project really gets it." Angel said.
