Tommy Lee Jones is in discussions to join the cast of Luc Besson's black comedy Malavita.
The Fugitive star would play an FBI official tasked with making sure a married gangster couple (Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer) behave themselves while in witness protection, Variety reports.
The family apparently soon resort to their old ways when faced with problems.
The movie is due to start filming in France in August.
Tommy is next starring alongside Meryl Streep in the comedy Hope Springs, and in the upcoming political drama Lincoln.
