The actor is working on a deal that will have him take the wheel for a China-set action/comedy called Rally Car.

We think we’re alone in the world but we’re not. In reality, there is a secret organization of people who are tasked with fighting an enemy we’ve all heard of but don’t actually know exists. If that sounds like the plot to Men in Black, you’re right, but it’s also Lore, a newly acquired Warner Bros. property based on a graphic novel by T.P. Louise and Ashley Wood.
