According to Variety, Jude Law will star in Anthony Minghella's Breaking and Entering for Miramax Films.
Law is in advanced talks to play Will, a London architect in personal and professional crisis whose life collides with that of a young immigrant.
The picture, which starts shooting in April, will mark the first time Minghella has directed one of his own original screenplays since his feature debut, Truly Madly Deeply, in 1991.
It will be Law's third collaboration with Minghella, following his Oscar-nominated performances in The Talented Mr. Ripley and Cold Mountain. No other roles have yet been cast.
