Caleb Landry Jones is in negotiations to appear in John Boorman's upcoming Queen and Country, a big-screen sequel to his semiautobiographical 1987 drama Hope and Glory, Variety reports.
Jones would likely take on the role of an older Bill Rowan (played by Sebastian Rice-Edwards in the first film) who, in Hope and Glory, saw the London Blitzkrieg through the eyes of a nine-year old boy.
Boorman, who last directed 2006's The Tiger's Tale, will write, direct and produce alongside Kieran Morgan.
Jones recently starred as Sean "Banshee" Cassidy in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class. He can next be seen in the sci-fi thriller Antiviral and Neil Jordan's vampire tale Byzantium.
