Amber Heard is set to drive into a new role in tense thriller Motor City.
The 25-year-old actress, who stars opposite Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary, is said to have won the coveted female lead opposite Dominic Cooper in Albert Hughes' upcoming movie, reported Deadline.
The Devil's Double star Dominic is to play a man who goes on a mission, as he hunts down the people who framed him following his release from prison, in the revenge tale, which has been written by Chad St John.
Next up for Amber is a role as the "enigmatic" character 6 in Syrup, which she describes as a "dark, satirical love story".
"I like to play characters, not a character. That is why I am in this work," she said.
"I like to keep myself challenged and that is part of telling stories," she added.
