Jared Leto is paying attention to the little things…
The 47-year-old part-Spanish Oscar-winning actor and singer is in talks to join the cast of Warner Bros’ Little Things, a cop thriller starring fellow Oscar winners Denzel Washington and Rami Malek.
John Lee Hancockis directing his script.
Washington is playing Deke, a burned-out Kern County sheriff who teams with an LA County Sheriff’s Department detective, Baxter (Malek), to reel in a wily serial killer, the role Leto is circling. Deke’s nose for the “little things” (hence the title of the movie) proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. All the while, Deke wrestles with a dark secret from his past.
Mark Johnson is producing and the film is looking to begin production next month.
Leto won an Academy Awardfor his performance as a transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club. His other film credits include Suicide Squad, Fight Club, Requiem for a Dream, American Psychoand Blade Runner 2049.
He’s also the lead singer of the rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars.
