Brie Larson in talks to star opposite Mark WahlbergĂ‚ in the remake of The Gambler.


Brie Larson, who has had a breakout year with leading and supporting roles in Short Term 12, The Spectacular Now, and Don Jon, is in talks to join Mark Wahlberg in the remake of The Gambler a 1974 feature film starring James Caan, Lauren Hutton, and Paul Sorvino.

The film was loosely based on the short novel The Gambler by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and was filmed at a time when leading actor James Caan was battling his own addiction to cocaine. Caan was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance.

It's still very early in the process, but Brie Larson would take on the role of a student who Wahlberg's Jim Bennett, a literature professor, is in love with. Rupert Wyatt, who worked with Wahlberg on Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is set to direct. Oscar winner William Monahan (The Departed) is penning the script.[/vc_column_text][/vc_row]
