Ryan Reynolds is reportedly set to star in a new psychological thriller.
The Adventureland actor - who married Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively last month - is in early talks to star as a man who hears his pets talking in The Voices, reports Deadline.
If Ryan signs up, he will play a factory worker called Jerry who falls for a co-worker. When their relationship takes a dark turn, Jerry starts letting his talking cat and dog guide him.
The Voices, which will be directed by Marjane Satrapi, made Hollywood's Black List of the best scripts yet to be turned into movies.
Ryan, 35, has plenty on his slate at the moment.
The actor's next big screen outing is in RIPD alongside Jeff Bridges and Kevin Bacon, and he is tipped to be returning for a sequel to his film Safe House.
The star has also been focusing on his TV and production ventures. His new TV show, a comedy drama titled Between Park And Lex, has reportedly been snapped up by ABC, and he has sold two new TV comedies to Fox.
