Timothy Spall is to play a conman in upcoming movie Sucker.

The Harry Potter actor is joining Lily Sullivan, Kat Stewart and Jacek Koman in the big screen adaptation of Lawrence Leung's stage show, reported Screen Daily.

YouTube star John Luc has also bagged a role in the movie, playing a teenager who is sent to stay with his uncle after cheating on his final year school exams and failing to get a place to study medicine.

He meets the Professor, the role British star Timothy will play, and the pair head off on a road trip with the Professor's daughter Sarah (Lily) during which he learns the art of swindling.

Ben Chessell will direct, with principal photography already under way in Australia.
