We had previously reported in April that Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Denzel Washington were in talks to star in the film and now, according to a leaked email that The Wrap has received, Will Smith and Christian Bale are in talks for the film, along with Penn and Bardem.
A Paramount rep told the site that it was not an official Paramount email and that, "It has some correct information and some inaccurrate information." Here are some of the other projects this email mentions below:
Young Adult - Paramount is looking to pick up this project which we reported a few weeks ago had set Charlize Theron to star and Jason Reitman to direct. The production is eyeing an October/November start date.
Untitled Jack Ryan Project - Seeking a new writer before the studio will greenlight the film.
Star Trek 2 - Film is still in the script stage. Production is set to start next year.
