Riseborough takes a Punch part

Andrea Riseborough worked with Madonna on new film WE

Andrea Riseborough has apparently nabbed the female lead in Welcome To The Punch.

The rising starlet could be joining James McAvoy and Mark Strong in the gritty crime thriller from writer-director Eran Creevy, but details about her role have yet to be revealed, Variety reported.

James would play London detective Max Lewinsky whose old nemesis - an armed robbed known as Red Diesel (Mark) - reappears after being away for five years.

Production is expected to start in July.

Andrea, who became an up-and-coming star following her appearances on Happy-Go-Lucky, Made In Dagenham and Brighton Rock, will next appear in Madonna's WE, which will receive its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
