Los Angeles - Jared Leto has signed up for action thriller The Outsider.

The actor -who won an Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club - will take on the lead role in the post-WWII Japan movie which tells the story of an imprisoned American soldier who is released with some help from his cellmate, who is a member of the yakuza (organised crime syndicate).

After his release he must repay his debt as he finds himself caught up in Japan's criminal underworld.

The movie, written by Andrew Baldwin and directed by Martin Zandvliet, is set to begin filming later this year.

Meanwhile, Jared will soon be seen on the big screen on Suicide Squad, where he plays The Joker.
