The former 'Bridgerton' actress is said to have entered discussions about appearing in the as-yet untitled movie from Sony Pictures.

According to Deadline, Tommy Wirkola will direct after he penned the script, but plot details are yet to be released.

Production on the motion picture is due to start in Australia this summer, with Adam McKay and Kevin Messick in line to produce the project.

In February, the 29-year-old star claimed there is "not that many parts going" for actresses in her age bracket.

She told the London Evening Standard newspaper: "I have read some great scripts recently. And yeah, I probably shouldn’t be saying this, but there is still, like, not that many parts going.

"There is such a space for male actors ... there are so many of them. And they’re all great.

"They’re all very talented young men, and they do not stop working, and good for them.

"But you know, when I think about the girls my age ... there’s way more room for them and there is still not enough room for us.

"It’s a really good time for older women, which is amazing, and there’s a lot for these young men, but not a lot for the actresses that I know in my age bracket."

The ‘Fair Play’ star also admitted she is keen to work behind the camera in the future, because it is a "dream" of hers.

She added: "I eventually want to produce. I would like to create the material that I feel is missing.

"I don’t know when that will be, but it’s a dream of mine."
