Idris Elba could be joining Lord Of The Rings actor Andy Serkis and Thomas Brodie-Sangster in a Fox adaptation of popular comic Mouse Guard.

The Boom! Studios comic adaptation will be directed by Wes Ball (the man behind the Maze Runner), with the film set in a medieval world.

It will tell the story of an order of mice who are sworn protectors of the realm.

The 46-year-old Luther star is reportedly in talks to play Celanawe, an Obi-Wan Kenobi-like figure who was once a legendary champion and now thought long gone.

Brodie-Sangster, who starred in Love Actually, will play the role of Lieam, who has to prove is bravery in the movie.

Speaking about his love of music and acting, and how he juggles the two, he said: DJing is my first love. Im a creative, but DJing was the first stop.

Thats where I started. By the time I was about 13, I was DJing for house parties. And then, I met my drama teacher, and the DJing went out the window.
