Idris Elba has been tipped for a role in new action thriller Gunman.

The Luther star is currently in talks about a part in director Pierre Morel's movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

Sean Penn and Javier Bardem are already on board for the movie, about an international operative (Sean) who is betrayed by the organisation he works for and has to clear his name in order to save his own life.

Golden Globe winner Idris is up for the role of another operative, named Dupont, but so far it hasn't been announced who Skyfall star Javier will play.

The action thriller is based on a novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette.

London-born Idris has several movies coming up, including Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim and crime thriller No Good Deed.

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
