Sigourney Weaver is in negotiations to join the cast of Columbia Pictures' "Vantage Point" says The Hollywood Reporter.

Helmed by Pete Travis from a Barry Levy screenplay, the thriller chronicles an assassination attempt on the U.S. president and is told from five points of view, unfolding in 15-minute increments.

Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, William Hurt and Forest Whitaker already have signed on. Weaver will play a TV news producer for a CNN-type network who will do anything to get the story.
