Few weeks ago we had a little chat about the upcoming Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi thriller I’m.mortal, that already stars Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake.
Today, we’re here for another casting update, because Inception star Cillian Murphy is in final negotiations to join the project that goes like this:
“In the future, time has become the currency. Once you turn 25 and your aging gene turns off, you must buy and bank time. If you are rich enough, you can live forever.
But if you run out of time, you are engineered to die automatically. When a rebel from the ghetto is falsely accused of murdering a wealthy man for his time, he is forced to go on the run with a beautiful, rich hostage.
Together, this duo rages against the system, living minute to minute. They discover that love is more powerful than all the time in the world.”
So, Amanda Seyfried is set to play an “eternal youthful beauty”, while Justin Timberlake’s character is described as “a poor man named Will.”
On the other hand, Murphy will play an officer from an organization known as Timekeepers and described as ‘precise as the time he keeps.’”
I’m.mortal is currently slated for 2011 release.
