David Oyelowo is said to be in talks to star alongside Tom Cruise in One Shot.
The British actor, who appeared as villainous Steven Jacobs in Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, is considering a role in Christopher McQuarrie's big-screen adaptation of Lee Child's thriller, reported Variety.
Tom is already on board as ex-military policeman Jack Reacher, who helps investigate the case of an accused serial killer.
David is expected to be cast as a homicide detective in charge of the investigation, where he joins Rosamunde Pike as the female lead.
Filming is scheduled to start soon, with a release planned for February 2013.
The 35-year-old, who started off in theatre with the Royal Shakespeare Company before moving onto TV series Spooks and films like The Last King Of Scotland, will next be seen as Preacher Green in The Help.
He has been busy, wrapping up George Lucas' Red Tails and Lee Daniels' The Paperboy.
