Charlize Theron is reportedly in talks to star in boyfriend Sean Penn's new film The Last Space.

The Oscar winners are thought to have begun dating last year and went official with their relationship during awards season when they attended several events together.

Sean is set to direct the drama - set in refugee camps in Sudan - on location in Africa this summer.

The Wrap reported that multiple sources have claimed Charlize could be set to star in the movie.

A representative for the South African actress apparently told the film website several weeks ago that speculation about her participation was "premature", while a spokesman for Sean said the project was still in its early stages.

French actress Adele Exarchapoulos - who made her name starring with Lea Seydoux in lesbian love story Blue Is the Warmest Colour last year - recently told Allocine that she has a "small role in the film".

She said the story concerns human encounters within refugee camps in Sudan.
