Irish actor Colin Farrell has reportedly signed an $8 million deal to star alongside Samuel L Jackson in the new film called 'S.W.A.T.'

The 26-year-old Dubliner can currently be seen playing Tom Cruise's nemesis in Stephen Spielberg's futuristic thriller 'Minority Report'.

'S.W.A.T' is based on a story about an arrested drug kingpin who offers $100 million to anyone who can free him after he is taken into custody.
