Owen and Theron for Inherent Vice?

Owen Wilson is reportedly in talks to join Paul Thomas Anderson's crime thriller Inherent Vice.

The Midnight In Paris star is said to be in negotiations for a lead role in the big-screen adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel, reported The Wrap.

Charlize Theron is also rumoured to play the female lead in the upcoming movie, set in 1970s Los Angeles.

Joaquin Phoenix, who previously worked with the director on The Master, has been cast as a drug-taking private investigator who takes the case of an alleged kidnapping of a girl he used to date, with Benicio del Toro in line to play his lawyer.

Inherent Vice, which Paul will direct and co-produce via his production arm Ghoulardi Film Company, is expected to start production in coming weeks.

Owen, who starred in Woody Allen's French-set drama with Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen, will next be reunited with his Wedding Crashers co-star Vince Vaughn in Shawn Levy's comedy The Internship.
