Viggo Mortensen is set to reprise the role of Nikolai in a sequel to Eastern Promises 2.
The actor played the role for the first time back in 2007 and he went on to be nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his performance.
But an insider has told Vulture than he is set for the sequel while director David Cronenberg and Vincent Cassel are also considering a return.
Eastern Promises was a crime thriller movie that followed the Russian Mafia in London and also starred Naomi Watts and Armin Mueller-Stahl.
Steven Knight penned the screenplay for the movie and it is believed that he will also return to write the sequel.
Mortensen was last seen on the big screen back at the beginning of the year when he reunited with Cronenberg for A Dangerous Method.
He is set to return in On The Road which sees him star alongside Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley.
