Schreiber in talks to join ‘Salt’ cast

U.S. actor Liev Schreiber is in negotiations to star in director Phillip Noyce's big-screen thriller Salt, opposite Angelina Jolie, Variety.com said.

Schreiber recently starred in Defiance. His other film credits include Scream, Jakob the Liar, A Walk on the Moon, The Hurricane, Kate & Leopold and The Omen.

Salt -- a film about a CIA officer identified as a Russian sleeper and on the run from her superiors while she tries to clear her name -- is slated to start shooting in New York next month, Variety.com said.

Noyce's other movies include Rabbit-Proof Fence and The Quiet American.
