Teen-actor-turned-hip-hop-star Drake may soon be returning to his former profession.  The former Degrassi: The Next Generation star is currently in talks to join writer/director Nicholas Jarecki’s (The Informers) financial thriller Arbitrage.  If the deal goes through, Drake (whose full name is Aubrey Drake Graham) would join a solid cast that already features Eva Green and Susan Sarandon.

According to TheWrap, Arbitrage will center on a hedge fund magnate who is “desperate to complete the sale of his shady trading empire before his fraud is revealed.”  As the story goes, an unexpected turn of events causes him to look for help from an unlikely source.  The film is currently scheduled to begin shooting this March in New York.  As for Drake, he has a previous film credit due to a minor role in 2007’s Charlie Bartlett.  [Update: This story has been revised to reflect our understanding that Al Pacino is no longer attached to star. ]
