London, Aug. 8 (ANI): US talk show superstar James Corden is in talks to voice Peter Rabbit, one of the most-loved children's book characters of all time.

Directed by Will Gluck, the project is a modern interpretation of the Beatrix Potter stories and is centered on the rivalry between mischievous young hopper Peter Rabbit and Mr. McGregor, a senior trying to keep a rabbit-free garden, reports The Independent.

Australian actress Rose Byrne is also in negotiation to join this project expected to be a combination of live-action and CG animation. (ANI)
