Swinton takes seat on Trainwreck?

Tilda Swinton is in talks to board Judd Apatow's new comedy Trainwreck.

The Oscar-winning actress is said to be "nearing a deal" to play the manager of Amy Schumer's character in the film, reported The Wrap.

She could be reunited with her We Need To Talk About Kevin co-star Ezra Miller, who is also in negotiations to join the cast.

Captain Phillips actor Barkhad Abdi, pro wrestler John Cena and comedians Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser and Vanessa Bayer are also in talks for the movie, which Bill Hader, Brie Larson and Colin Quinn are already on board for.

Amy, who pitched the idea to Universal, has been developing the film's script with producer and director Judd.

Trainwreck is scheduled for release in July 2015.

Tilda, who won an Oscar for her supporting performance in Michael Clayton, was last seen in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel and Jim Jarmusch's vampire drama Only Lovers Left Alive.

Her upcoming movies include roles in Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem and the sci-fi movie Snowpiercer.
