Ryan Reynolds is to star in thriller Criminal.

The Canadian actor has joined Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones in the upcoming film, reported Variety.

Hatfields And McCoys star Kevin has been cast as a ruthless criminal, who volunteers for an experimental procedure to have the memories and skills of a murdered CIA field agent transferred into his own mind, with Tommy as the doctor who carries out the operation.

The Iceman's Ariel Vromen will direct Criminal, which has been written by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg.

Ryan, who last had a cameo in Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways To Die In The West, will next be seen in The Voices alongside Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick, and Atom Egoyan's thriller The Captive with Rosario Dawson.

He also stars with Dame Helen Mirren and Daniel Bruhl in the upcoming The Woman In Gold and Tarsem Singh's drama Selfless opposite Sir Ben Kingsley and Matthew Goode.

Becoming more independent will actually strengthen your relationships, not weaken them. Start looking for your own place to live.More
