Emile Hirsch is apparently in discussions to play a US naval officer in new drama Lone Survivor.

The Savages star could be joining Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch and Ben Foster in the Peter Berg-directed movie about four Navy SEALs, Deadline reports.

Lone Survivor is an adaptation of Marcus Luttrell's book about how he and his comrades fought to survive after being ambushed by Taliban forces in Afghanistan in 2005.

Into The Wild star Emile, 27, has now finished work on Venuto Al Mondo alongside Penelope Cruz and Jane Birkin.
