Nicholas Hoult is reportedly in talks to star in futuristic thriller Young Ones.

The former Skins actor, who currently stars in zombie romance Warm Bodies, apparently looks set to appear in Jake Paltrow's upcoming movie, reported Variety.

Elle Fanning, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Michael Shannon are also in negotiations to join the cast.

The film, which has also been written by Jake, centres on a 14-year-old boy who is forced to use his survival instincts in a "violent near-future where water has become the most precious - and fastest dwindling - resource on the planet".

Production has already begun in South Africa's Northern Cape desert.

Nicholas - who will reprise his role in the X-Men sequel, Days Of Future Past - will next be seen in Jack The Giant Slayer opposite Ewan McGregor and Ian McShane, before George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
