Jake Abel is said to be in advanced talks to join Saoirse Ronan in new sci-fi drama The Host.

The pair starred together in The Lovely Bones and could soon begin working together again on the adaptation of Twilight author Stephenie Meyer's post-apocalyptic novel, Deadline reports.

Jake - who has previously appeared in I Am Number Four and Percy Jackson And The Olympians: The Lightning Thief - would play Ian, one of two male leads.

The other lead male role, also named Jake, has apparently been narrowed down to a small number of actors including including Liam Hemsworth, Max Irons, Game of Thrones' Kit Harington and Spartacus' Jai Courtney.

The Host is due to begin shooting in Louisiana and New Mexico next February and is set to be released in cinemas on March 29, 2013.
