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.

The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
