The actress is in talks to join the Coen brothers' new movie alongside confirmed cast members Josh Brolin and George Clooney.

Meanwhile, Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes were all recently revealed to be close to joining the movie's line-up.

The story follows a Hollywood fixer in the 1950s who works to keep a film studio's actors in line.
