Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Bradley Cooper have all been linked to crime drama Candy Store.
The film centres around a deep-cover operative who loses everything and reinvents himself as a simple beat cop, only to discover that his neighbourhood has been taken over by the international crime syndicate he was once dedicated to destroying.
The Jerry Weintraub-produced McQueen biopic Triumph AKA 40 Summers Ago already has the actor's brother Liam Hemsworth attached.
The film centres around the late actor's relationship with his stunt double, Bud Elkins.
Hemsworth is currently filming the Disney/Marvel Studios sequel Thor: The Dark World. See pictures below:
