Tom Wilkinson is to join thriller Felony, it has been reported.
The two-time Oscar nominee is to play Detective Carl Summer in the upcoming film, which has already been written by Joel Edgerton, reported Collider.
Australian actor Joel will also star as a decorated police officer whose life changes after he runs a cyclist off the road, following a boozy night out with colleagues.
Felony, which will be directed by Matthew Saville, is scheduled to start shooting in October.
Tom, who has starred in Michael Clayton, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and 44 Inch Chest, will next appear in The Lone Ranger opposite Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.
