Freeman joins The Taliban Shuffle

Martin Freeman looks set to join Tina Fey in The Taliban Shuffle.

The Hobbit actor is currently in talks about taking a role in the black comedy, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The film is a big screen adaptation of journalist Kim Barker's memoir, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan, and will see 30 Rock star Tina play Kim.

Martin, 43, will play Kim's love interest, a photojournalist from Scotland.

Margot Robbie - who made a splash opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf Of Wall Street - is set to play another reporter.

The Taliban Shuffle is being directed by Crazy, Stupid, Love duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.
