British actor Christopher Eccleston has wasted no time in finding his next big project after giving up on TV series Doctor Who after one season - he's reportedly in talks to play the villain of The Da Vinci Code.

The GONE IN 60 SECONDS star is said to be the new favourite to play killer monk SILAS in director Ron Howard's adaptation of Dan Brown's best-selling book, according to website DIGITALSPY.COM.

Jim Carrey was also rumoured to be in talks for the role of the monk, who is a fearsome albino in the story.

The Da Vinci Code, which will star Tom Hanks, Jean Reno and Audrey Tatou, begins filming in June (05).
