Hedlund, Ahmed for Violent Talent

Garrett Hedlund has signed on to star in crime thriller Violent Talent.

The Tron: Legacy star is set to lead the movie, with Riz Ahmed, Toby Kebbell and Margot Robbie in supporting roles, reported Deadline.

Written and directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan, the Chicago-set drama follows Eamon (Garrett) as he and his oldest friends Angel and Quan (Toby and Riz) try to build a criminal empire.

The film marks Matthew's first time in the director's chair.

Garrett, last seen in On The Road with Kristen Stewart and Sam Riley, will next star in drama Lullaby with Amy Adams, and the Coen brothers' music-themed drama Inside Llewyn Davis.

The 28-year-old, who is dating his On The Road co-star Kirsten Dunst, is also expected to reprise his role as Sam Flynn in Tron 3.
