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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
