Oscar winner Jared Leto is in talks to replace Will Smith in the movie adaptation of Marcus Sakey's novel Brilliance.

Leto, who won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his gender-bending role as an AIDS victim in Dallas Buyers Club, is tipped to join Noomi Rapace in director Julius Onah's film about people with extraordinary abilities. If Leto signs up, he will portray a talented federal agent on the hunt for a terrorist, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Smith withdrew from the project in May (14) due to scheduling issues following a delay in production.
