Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to replace Dominic Cooper in upcoming action movie "Motor City."
Cooper was initially cast as the lead in the project, about a recently-released felon intent of bringing the men who framed him to justice, but he was forced to drop out due to scheduling difficulties.
Gyllenhaal is now slated to lead the film, which will also star Gary Oldman and Amber Heard.
"Motor City" will be directed by Albert Hughes, one half of the Hughes Brothers, who directed "Menace II Society" and "The Book of Eli." It is scheduled for release in 2013.
