The smouldering star will play high flying financier Eric Packer in the adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel, according to film website Deadline.

The dramatic-sounding storyline sees Eric risk his vast fortune in bet on the currency market, which lands him in the centre of a fierce assassination plot.

Sounding good? Well it’s about to get a lot better. Oscar winner Marion Cortillard and actor Paul Giamatti are also rumoured to be starring in the flick, directed by David Cronenberg.

It’s thought final negotiations are still being made, with work planned to begin when Rob finishes filming the last Twilight flick.
