Deadline has the scoop that Malek is in talks to co-star in the crime drama "Little Things" opposite acting legend -- and fellow Oscar winner -- Denzel Washington. Here's the scoop on the film's plot, per the trade:
Malek is making a deal to play a sharp young detective who teams with a seen-it-all deputy sheriff [Washinton] on the hunt for a serial killer. The sheriff has a nose for the “little things” that are helpful in putting clues together, but he’s got baggage and a willingness to cut corners that bristles with his younger partners.
This is Malek's second high-profile project in the works post-Oscar, following his casting as the as-yet-unnamed villain in the as-yet-unnamed upcoming "Bond 25" flick, directed by Cary Fukunaga. That film is currently slated for release in early 2020.
