COLIN Farrell is in talks to star opposite Denzel Washington in a new thriller called Inner City.

Written and directed by Dan Gilroy, of Nightcrawler fame, the film will find Washington playing an awkward, reclusive lawyer, who has worked as a legal researcher in Los Angeles for decades.

When his mentor dies, he is recruited by a prestigious but cutthroat law firm where he stumbles upon a case that changes his life.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Farrell is being lined up to play the slick, money-focused lawyer who recruits Washington’s character to his firm.

Shooting is due to begin in March in LA.

Farrell last appeared in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. But he has two more movies on the way in the form of Sofia Coppola’s remake of The Beguiled and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, a drama that reunites him with Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos.

Washington has recently landed an Oscar nomination for his latest film, Fences, which he also directs.
