PanARMENIAN.Net - Svetlana Khodchenkova is reportedly in talks to play the role of Viper in The Wolverine.

Following the departure of the formerly cast Jessica Biel, the studio is looking to cast a replacement, with Russian actress Khodchenkova currently the frontrunner, Digital Spy said citing Twitch Film.

Khodchenkova is best known for her role as ill-fated Soviet operative Irina in last year's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, in which she shared scenes with Tom Hardy.
