Jon Voight is "in negotiations" to play a KGB agent in drama Reagan.
He is tipped to portray a Soviet KGB agent named Viktor, whose job it was to track down the 40th American president in the movie, which is based on two books by Paul Kengor - The Crusader and God And Ronald Reagan.
"Viktor is actually a character based on a number of KGB agents and Soviet analysts who we now know were tasked with keeping tabs on Ronald Reagan for many years," said the author.
"This is a feature film and not a documentary and I thought it was a smart way for the producers to keep the integrity of the story and yet make it entertaining."
