Garfield cast in murder-mystery?

Andrew Garfield could be starring in a new murder mystery

Andrew Garfield is set to star in the big-screen adaptation of the best-selling novel Back Roads, according to reports.

Valentine's Day actress Jennifer Garner and Mystic River's Marcia Gay Harden are also attached to the murder mystery film, Variety reported.

Andrew, who recently landed the title role in the next Spider-Man film, will play a young man forced to care for his three young sisters when their mother is sent behind bars for killing her abusive husband.

Jennifer will take on the role of a neighbour who becomes romantically involved with Andrew's character, while Marcia is his court-appointed therapist, Variety said.

A number of high-profile actresses are also being considered for the roles of Andrew's sisters.

British-born Fatal Attraction filmmaker Adrian Lyne is set to direct the Pennsylvania-set film from a screenplay he co-wrote with the book's author Tawni O'Dell.

British-American actor Andrew recently made his name in The Social Network and Never Let Me Go.

Back Roads previously made Oprah Winfrey's book club.
