Olivia Munn - Olivia Munn to star in Mortdecai?

Olivia Munn is in negotiations to star in 'Mortdecai'.

'The Newsroom' actress - best known for playing Sloan Sabbith - is wanted to join an all-star cast alongside Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor in David Koepp's adaptation of Kyril Bonfigliolio's 1970 comedy-crime novel 'The Great Mortdecai Moustache Mystery', according to Deadline.

Koepp - who is one of Hollywood's best known screenwriters after penning blockbusters 'Jurassic Park' and 'Spider Man' - will direct the film from a screenplay written by Eric Aronson, while Depp will produce the movie alongside his producing partner Christi Dembrowski, as well as Andrew Lazar.

The story follows Mortdecai (Depp) as he races against the clock to retrieve a stolen painting, which is said to contain the code to a bank account filled with Nazi gold, but along the way he'll have to deal with angry Russians, the British Mi5 and an international terrorist.

The project has been in development for a number of years at Warner Bros., but was put on the back-burner until earlier this year.
