Los Angeles: `The Devil Wears Prada` star Emily Blunt is in talks to star in Denis Villeneuve`s `Sicario`.

The 31-year-old actress is lining up to star in the action thriller, reportedly.

The film will centre around a cop from Tucson, Arizona, who teams up with two mercenaries to cross the Mexican border on the trail of a drug lord.

Villeneuve will film `Sicario` in the summer, and will follow it up with the sci-fi drama `The Story of Your Life`.

`American Hustle` star Amy Adams recently entered talks to star in the latter film, which is based on a Ted Chiang novel.

Blunt will next be seen with Tom Cruise in `Edge of Tomorrow` and in the Disney live action musical `Into the Woods`.
