The "X-Men: First Class" beauty is looking to expand her horizons as she's in talks to join M. Night Shyamalan's new sci-fi adventure, "After Earth," according to Heat Vision.

"After Earth" (previously titled "One Thousand A.E.," but it's probably not a good idea to have a title that reminds anyone of "Titan A.E."), follows the plight of a father and son (Will Smith and his real-life offspring, Jaden Smith) after they crash-land on planet Earth over one thousand years after it's been deemed inhospitable.

Kravitz would be playing the role of the elder Smith's daughter/the younger Smith's sister, with "Doctor Who" star Sophie Okenado also in talks to play the wife/mom.

Zoe Kravitz most recently appeared as winged stripper Angel Salvadore in "X-Men: First Class" and has a recurring role on Showtime's "Californication." She's set to begin filming the fourth installment of the "Mad Max" series, "Fury Road," next year.

Okay, M. Night -- you've definitely got a decent cast for your next endeavor. Might this be shaping up to be your redemption project? Tread carefully, sir.

"After Earth" will begin production in early 2012 with a look toward a release date of June 7, 2013 (that's B.E.).
