It is a comedy about a magical love affair written by Mr. Burton and the incredibly funny and talented Michael Goudeau. Mr. Goudeau performed his juggling act as a part of Mr. Burton’s long-running Las Vegas magic show and can be heard each week as part of Penn Jillette’s Penn’s Sunday School.
The plot seems straightforward and full of possibilities: Master Magician Billy Topit (inside joke for us magical types) is being pursued by unsavory organized crime members while he tries to convince his dream girl to be his assistant.
“It’s been lot of fun,” Mr. Burton told Norm Clarke of The Las Vegas Review-Journal. “There’s a lot of magic in it and cool stuff.”
As we learn more about the film, its release date and publicity plan, we will let you know. Billy Topit, classic!
