Edward Burns is in negotiations to topline Lions Gate Films' suspense drama "Confidence" for director James Foley. The project begins shooting at the beginning of April is expected to wrap by the end of May.

Written by Doug Jung, "Confidence" is about master con man Jake Vig, who swindles a few thousand dollars from an unsuspecting victim who turns out to be an accountant for a major crime kingpin. Unable to return the money, Jake and his crew offer to pull off a big con to repay their debt. Even though the con looks to be going awry, the con men prove to be one step ahead. Ignite Entertainment will produce the project, which Lions Gate picked up in turnaround from Fine Line Features last year (HR 4/18).

Burns is repped by WMA, Artists Management Group and attorneys Karl Austen and Barry Hirsch. He next stars opposite Angelina Jolie in 20th Century Fox/Regency Enterprises' "Life, or Something Like It." He is in postproduction on the indie feature "Ash Wednesday," which he directed, wrote, produced and stars in alongside a cast that includes Elijah Wood, Oliver Platt and Rosario Dawson.
