Denzel Washington looks set to play a contract killer in a new movie.

The Oscar-winner is currently in early talks about taking on the part in Shovel Ready, reported Deadline.

The post-apocalyptic movie will be adapted from journalist Adam Sternbergh's book - which has not yet been released - but is still in the early stages, with no director attached.

It is set in a devastated future New York City where "most of the population escapes reality by tapping into a digital fantasy world".

Flight star Denzel, 58, is in talks about the part of an assassin who is hired to kill the daughter of a powerful evangelist, but comes to be her protector. So far it's not known who would play the girl.

The actor can soon be seen in action/crime comedy 2 Guns.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

You're moody and sensitive, especially when it comes to family matters. Although you should make a big change, emotional ties to home are holding you back. Stop making excuses for your failure to act. Just take a leap of faith. Your nearest and dearest will learn to live without your constant presence. Becoming more independent will actually strengthen your relationships, not weaken them. Start looking for your own place to live.More
