(Reuters) - Cineworld Group Plc, a British operator of movie theaters, is in talks with U.S. peer Regal Entertainment Group about a potential merger, people familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

Cineworld's offer values Regal at around $23 per share, one of the sources said. There is no certainty the discussions will lead to a deal, the sources added, asking not to be identified because the discussions are confidential.

Cineworld and Regal Entertainment did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
