Idris Elba set for Gunman movie

Idris Elba is reportedly in talks for a role in Gunman

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.

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
