Deadline reports that the actor is being lined up to star in the latest project from Andy and Lana Wachowski, the brother-sister duo behind The Matrix and Cloud Atlas.

Bean will play a 'Han Solo-type character' in the film, which centres around the idea that Earth is under observation by superior beings from other worlds.

Also lined up to co-star is Channing Tatum, alongside Eddie Redmayne and Mila Kunis.

Kunis will play a Russian immigrant cleaning lady who is targeted for assassination due to possessing the same perfect genetics as the Queen of the Universe, with her very existence threatening the monarch's rule.
