Strong played cop Frank Agnew in the Channel 4 original and could now reprise his role in the US version, Deadline reports.
Written and exec produced by Chris Mundy (Criminal Minds), AMC's Low Winter Sun will transpose the original's story of police corruption from Edinburgh to Detroit.
In both versions, Agnew's life is turned upside down when he helps to kill a corrupt fellow police officer.
James Ransone (Inside Man) will star alongside Strong as Damon Callis, a member of a Detroit crime syndicate.
The Low Winter Sun remake was first ordered by AMC in May, alongside a legal thriller from Justified's Tony Goldwyn.
