Jolie had previously expressed an interest in signing on for the film, which already features Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem and her fiance Brad Pitt, but scheduling difficulties are thought to have thwarted her plans and now Deadline.com reports Diaz is in "final negotiations" for the project.

Penelope Cruz is also said to have joined the star-studded cast, working alongside her husband Bardem.

Jolie and Pitt famously fell in love on the set of their first movie collaboration, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, in 2005.
