Nightcrawler writer/director Dan Gilroy already has Denzel Washington aboard his next gritty thriller, Inner City. Now he's aiming to add Colin Farrell to the cast.

With news of Farrell entering talks comes some more details on the story for this one. Washington will play a reclusive lawyer who has worked for decades as a legal researcher for his beloved mentor. But when the older man passes away, he's snapped up by a well-known, but far more cutthroat firm where he discovers a case that changes his life... And could potentially threaten it.

As for Farrell, he's circling playing the slick, wealthy legal eagle who initially recruits Washington to his new job. If he makes a deal, he'll be working on the film starting the middle of March in Los Angeles. Farrell most recently worked on Sofia Coppola's latest, The Beguiled and reunited with his Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos for The Killing Of A Sacred Deer.
