Arbitrage director Nicholas Jarecki has revealed he is already hoping to get Richard Gere to star in his next film.

The Pretty Woman star earned a Golden Globe nomination for his performance as a corrupt banker in Nicholas's feature debut co-starring Susan Sarandon and Tim Roth.

Nicholas revealed at the thriller's premiere in London: "I'm writing a new script. It's called Fuel. It's a detective story about electric cars, and I'm losing my mind writing it, but I hope I'll finish it and maybe Richard will even be in it!"

The 33-year-old actor said he wanted the Hollywood star to join Arbitrage, as what he describes as a "business gangster" because he thinks he looks like a banker.

He said: "Richard Gere is a dashingly handsome man, but he has a confidence and a smoothness. You trust him.

"He looks like he works in finance - I can see myself buying a stick for him. But at the same time he is not afraid to go deep. He's not afraid to access the pathos that I think gives this film it's bite."
