Jared Leto is in early talks to join Denzel Washington and Rami Malek in Warner Bros. crime thriller "The Little Things".
If the deal goes through, Leto will take on the role of the serial killer in the movie, which is planned to begin shooting this fall.
The story will follow burned-out Kern County, California deputy sheriff Deke (Denzel Washington) who teams with crack LASD detective Baxter (Malek) in the hunt for a dangerous serial killer. According to the plot description, Deke's nose for the "little things" proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, Deke must wrestle with a dark secret from his past.
John Lee Hancock, who directed best picture nominee "The Blind Side" and Netflix's Woody Harrelson-Kevin Costner pic "The Highwaymen", is on board to write and direct the film.
