"Vidhu is currently in Los Angeles, working on for Broken Horses. Cage has been confirmed for one of the leading roles just a few days ago," the Daily Express quoted a source as saying.
The actor won't need to pick up any new languages for the role - or even travel very far - Chopra recently revealed his latest project will be shot in the U.S. and in English.
He said: "In September, I will start shooting Broken Horses in the U.S. It will be an English film and will be for the world audience. I have done Hindi films, now I am doing English and after this I may do a Hindi film again."
