Jamie Foxx is the current favourite to star as legendary US civil rights leader Martin Luther King in a biopic to be directed by Oliver Stone.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stone is in talks to direct the as-yet untitled film, which is a co-production between DreamWorks and Warner Bros. Foxx is in talks to star as King, but offers have yet to be made.

This is the second King biopic currently in development as Paul Greengrass is set to direct a documentary-style chronicle of the assassinated civil rights leader's final days entitled Memphis.

Forest Whitaker is currently in talks to play the lead role.
