Sophie Okonedo could be heading into the future for 1000 AE.

The Oscar-nominated British starlet is said to be in early talks to join M Night Shyamalan's upcoming sci-fi adventure, alongside Will Smith and his son Jaden, who are set to portray father and son on screen, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Sophie is tipped to be cast as Will's screen wife, while Zoe Kravitz - who last appeared in X-Men: First Class - could be playing their daughter.

The film, which has been co-written by Gary Whitta, Stephen Gaghan and M Night himself, is set 1,000 years into the future, and follows the dad and son crash-landing on an inhospitable future Earth, in which the failed-warrior son must rescue the heroic father.

Production is set to begin in early 2012, with a 2013 release.
