IRISH actor Colin Farrell is reportedly gearing up to star in director Sofia Coppola’s remake of the Clint Eastwood Civil War drama Beguiled.

The actor, recently seen in Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster opposite both Rachel Weisz and Jessica Barden, is in talks to take over the role played by Eastwood in the original film, “as an injured Yankee soldier who takes refuge in a Southern all-girls boarding school where he cons his way into the hearts several women”, according to Collider.

Coppola has been confirmed to both write and direct the feature, which will also star actresses Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, and Kirsten Dunst.

Beguiled will be Coppola’s first full-length film since the release of The Bling Ring in 2013.
