Ralph Fiennes is in talks to star in drama Sands.

The Harry Potter star is said to be in "advanced negotiations" for the lead role, reported Variety.

He is tipped to play a New York surgeon, whose wife remains in a coma following a car accident. The plot sees her spirit travel to India towards an imaginary man, and she must decide between this or returning to consciousness to her husband.

Filming is expected to begin in the autumn in Toronto, Reunion Island and India.

Ralph - who last appeared in Sam Mendes' Bond movie Skyfall and Mike Newell's Great Expectations - will next star as celebrated writer Charles Dickens in The Invisible Woman, which he will also direct.

The two-time Oscar nominee is also filming Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel alongside Saoirse Ronan, Jude Law and Bill Murray.

When it flutters with excitement, you should move forward. This will be a surprisingly accurate barometer. Don't disparage it.More
