Actor Ewan McGregor will star in an adaptation of American Pastoral from director Phillip Noyce.

The 43-year-old Impossible actor and Salt filmmaker are working together to adapt Philip Roth's acclaimed novel, reports Digita Spy.

McGregor will take on the starring role of Seymour 'Swede' Levov, a blonde Jewish businessman living in Newark, New Jersey, whose ordinary life is disturbed by the chaos of the 1960s under the presidency of JFK's successor Lyndon B Johnson.

The Lincoln Lawyer writer John Romero wrote the script for the long-gestating project.

Roth's The Human Stain and Elegy have both previously been adapted to screen.

McGregor was most recently seen in August: Osage County and A Million Ways to Die in the West, and will appear in the upcoming Jane Got a Gun with Star Wars co-star Natalie Portman.

American Pastoral will go on floors early 2015.
