Jack O'Connell is tipped to play an MI6 agent in a new spy movie.
The Skins actor is in final talks about the role in Section 6, reported The Wrap.
The 23-year-old would play the younger lead in the spy thriller about the formation of British intelligence agency MI6.
So far no director is attached to the film, which could apparently become a franchise.
Jack has recently been working on Angelina Jolie's war drama Unbroken, giving a performance which is thought to be likely to win awards.
The British actor has also been filming 300: Rise Of An Empire, the sequel to fantasy action film 300.
