Edgerton, Shannon for Nichols film
Joel Edgerton is set to star with Michael Shannon in a new Jeff Nichols film.
The actor impressed at Warner Bros with his role as Tom Buchanan in The Great Gatsby and is now being welcomed back to the studio for the new project, said Variety.
So far, the film is untitled and plot details are being kept under wraps, but it's said to be a modern day sci-fi chase which is also written by director Jeff.
This is the first major studio project for Jeff after his successful indie projects Take Shelter and Mud.
It looks like the new film will be going into production early next year.
Joel is currently shooting Jane Got A Gun with Natalie Portman and Ewan McGregor, while Michael recently opened in Man Of Steel and appears in upcoming horror The Harvest.
