Mila Kunis is to star in a remake of 2014 Norwegian action/comedy 'Jackpot' alongside 'Breaking Bad' actor Bryan Cranston

Mila Kunis and Bryan Cranston are to star in new movie 'Jackpot'.

The 32-year-old actress and the 60-year-old actor are to play lead roles in the action/comedy, which is a remake of the 2014 Norwegian film of the same name directed by Magnus Martens, according to Deadline.

'The Lone Range' hunk Armie Hammer is also rumoured to be joining the cast and Jennifer Garner is also in talks to join the line-up.

'Jackpot' is based on a Jo Nesbo story about a man armed with a shotgun who wakes in a strip club to discover he's surrounded by dead men and police guns aimed at him.

'Annie' director Will Gluck is directing the remake and 'The Expendables' writer Dave Callaham is scripting the project.

No studio is attached to the project yet but 'Jackpot' is set to spark a bidding war when it is touted at the Cannes Film Festival and it is hoped production will start this summer.

Kunis will next be seen in comedy 'Bad Moms' in which she stars with Kristen Bell and Christina Applegate.

Cranston has also joined the cast of the English language remake of French film 'Intouchables', in which he will appear opposite Kevin Hart.

The 'Breaking Bad' star will also star with Garner in 'Wakefield' - directed by Robin Swicord - and in Pablo Escobar crime drama 'The Infiltrator'.
