The actors co-star in upcoming drama Wakefield, based on the short story of same name by E. L. Doctorow, and now Garner is eyeing a role in another Cranston project.

Jackpot, a remake of a 2011 Norwegian action comedy, will feature the Breaking Bad star alongside Mila Kunis and Armie Hammer, reports Deadline.com.

The film, which will be directed by Annie reboot filmmaker Will Gluck, follows an armed man who wakes up in a strip club to find himself surrounded by dead bodies.

The script will be penned by The Expendables writer David Callaham, and producers are planning to shop the movie at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival in France later this month (May16).

Jackpot isn't the only remake Cranston is attached to. He is also set to team up with comedian Kevin Hart for the Hollywood revamp of French-language film The Intouchables.

Cranston will play a paraplegic aristocrat, who hires a man from the projects as his caregiver following his tragic paragliding accident.

The original comedy-drama, starring Francois Cluzet and Omar Sy, was released in 2011 and made more than $410 million (£283 million) worldwide from an estimated $10 million (£7 million) budget. It became the second biggest box office hit in France following its release.

Bridesmaids filmmaker Paul Feig wrote the screenplay for the reboot, but dropped out of plans to direct. My Week With Marilyn's Simon Curtis has since been tapped to take charge of the movie.
