Michael Fassbender could be playing a prisoner-of-war in crime drama The Outsider.

The Shame star is being eyed to take the leading role of an American former POW, who rises in the Yakusa in post-World War II Japan, reported Deadline.

Safe House director Daniel Espinosa is said to be in talks to take control of the thriller.

Michael - who currently stars in David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method and Steven Soderbergh's thriller Haywire - could be reuniting with Steve McQueen for Twelve Years A Slave, and has an upcoming big screen outing in Ridley Scott's Prometheus.

He is also apparently considering roles in Ridley Scott's The Counsellor and Brendan Gleeson's long-developing At Swim-Two-Birds, as well as playing Irish legendary warrior Cuchulain in Irish Myths.
