Joel Edgerton may join Jennifer Lawrence s ever-growing list of talented co-stars.
The actor is in talks to star opposite the Oscar winner in Fox s upcoming spy thriller Red Sparrow, reports Deadline.
The film is an adaptation of the 2013 novel of the same name.
Written by Jason Matthews, the book centers on two modern-day intelligence officers: Russia s Dominika Egorova and American CIA agent Nathaniel Nash.
The two operatives paths cross when Dominika, a trained seductress, is assigned to work against Nathaniel as he attempts to gather Russian intelligence.
Complicating both of their jobs is the fact that they have a strong mutual attraction.
