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.

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
