Gary Oldman is in negotiations to join Millennium Film's upcoming action thriller Criminal. Kevin Costner is already on board to star.

The film centers on a dead CIA agent's memory banks, secrets and particular skill-sets that are implanted into a dangerous prisoner to hopefully stop an evil plot. If the deal comes together, Gary Oldman will portray the CIA chief.

The Iceman director Ariel Vroman will be helming the project from a script written by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg. Chris Bender, J.C. Spink, Kevin King, Christa Campbell, Lati Grobman and Jason Bloom are producing.

Gary Oldman previously starred in the recent RoboCop remake and will next be seen in Child 44 alongside Tom Hardy and Joel Kinnaman. No production schedule has been released.
