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.

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
