Ryan Reynolds is in talks to star in thriller Selfless.
The Green Lantern actor will be working with Mirror Mirror: The Untold Adventures Of Snow White director Tarsem Singh if he signs up for the film, Deadline reported.
The film is about a wealthy older man who, when he discovers he's dying, wants his mind transplanted into the body of a younger person.
Canadian actor Ryan, 36, recently appeared in another crime mystery, Safe House, with Denzel Washington.
Tarsem has directed other quirky projects before, including Immortals and Mirror Mirror.
Ryan can be seen later this year in crime comedy R.I.P.D. about a policeman who is killed and then joins a team of other dead officers in the Rest In Peace Department.
He is also voicing the lead character in Turbo, an animated adventure about a speedy garden snail.
Tarsem is working on the historical drama Marco Polo, due out in 2014.
