Queen Latifah is reportedly in negotiations to join Diane Keaton in "Mad Money."

Still puts priority on her career in film industry rather than that in music scene, Queen Latifah is on the brink to add her next stint in her acting resume. Production Weekly has reported that the "Chicago" star is currently in talks to have a role in "Mad Money", the remake of the 2001 British TV-movie feature "Hot Money."

If a deal is signed, Latifah will likely to play Liz, one of the janitors on a night cleaning crew at a Federal Reserve bank in which Diane Keaton's character, Bridget, also works. The film itself will follow the latter one as she figures out a creative way to get money in her effort to pay debts and avoid losing her house.

Shooting on the project is slated to start late March in Shreveport, Louisiana with Callie Khouri handling directing matters while completing polishing the original screenplay with Glenn Gers. Serving as producer are James Acheson, Jay Cohen, and Frank DeMartini with Boaz Davidson, Avi Lerner, Michael P. Flannigan, and Trevor Short all executive producing.
