John Malkovich is set to star in Siberian Education.

The Oscar-nominated star has signed onto the big screen adaptation of Nicolai Lilin's autobiography of the same name, reported Variety, where he will play Grandfather Kuzja.

His character will teach his grandson Kolyma, played by Lithuanian actor Arnas Fedaravicius, the morals of "honest criminals" among the Siberian Urkas (bandits) in Transnistria, a lawless community between Moldova and Ukraine.

The screenplay has been penned by Stefano Rulli, Sandro Petraglia, and director Gabriele Salvatores (I'm Not Scared), set in 1985-1995.

Production is set to begin shooting in Lithuania at the end of August, with a few scenes filmed in Italy.
