Foxx, Rock after Intouchables role

Jamie Foxx is one of the names being linked to Paul Feig's next film

Jamie Foxx and Chris Rock are reportedly among the stars in the race for the lead role in director Paul Feig's new movie.

British star Idris Elba is also thought to be circling the part in the Bridesmaids filmmaker's project, The Intouchables, reports The New York Post's Page Six.

The movie is a remake of a French film in which rising star Omar Sy plays Driss, a petty criminal who is hired to care for a quadriplegic aristocrat.

The original film has been a big success and became the second highest grossing French film of all time at the French box office. Earlier this year Omar scooped the Cesar Award for Best Actor for his performance.

Feig is also after a female lead and Page Six reports that My Week With Marilyn star Michelle Williams and The Help's Jessica Chastain are in the running for the part.
