Gary Oldman is in final talks to join revenge drama Motor City, being directed by Albert Hughes. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy star, who recently earned an Oscar nod for his role of a spy in the movie, will play the villain in the movie, being distributed by Warner Bros, the Hollywood Reporter said.



The Devil's Double star Dominic Cooper and Amber Heard are also starring in the picture, which is about a small-time criminal, who is framed and sent to prison, only to exact revenge years later to get back the woman he loves.



Oldman, who worked with Hughes on Book of Eli, will play the main villain in the film, which will begin shooting in Berlin this April.
