Dev Patel has apparently joined the cast of thriller Defiant.

The Slumdog Millionaire star and Toni Collette are said to be on board Bill Bennett's gritty drama, which is based on the true story of a double honour killing in India, reported Deadline.

The Bafta-nominated 22-year-old is tipped to portray a young man who tries to escape from vengeful parents with his girlfriend, who are intent on killing the lovers to prevent them from marrying.

Australian actress Toni is thought to be playing a journalist covering the story.

Dev, who last appeared in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, will next be seen in Aaron Sorkin's new TV series The Newsroom, while Toni is busy with Hitchcock alongside Sir Anthony Hopkins in the title role.
