The James Bond star has joined the likes of Ewan McGregor, Orlando Bloom and Tom Hardy in expressing "huge interest" for the adaptation of ITV's classic 1970s show.
Actor Ray Winstone has already been cast as George Carter, the sidekick of Regan, who was originally played by actor John Thaw.
"All four are keen on the role but whoever ends up doing it will change the movie's tone. With the right cast The Sweeney could be even bigger," digitalspy.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
