Amanda Seyfried (“Dear John,” “Mamma Mia!”) has joined the cast of Andrew Niccol’s latest sci-fi feature “I’m.mortal” for 20th Century Fox, New Regency and Strike Entertainment says Variety.
The story is set in a society where people engineered to stop ageing at 25-years-old and time has become the currency of the realm. The wealthy are practically immortal while the majority of the populous struggles to bank what extra time they can.
The male lead, yet to be cast, is a ghetto rebel wrongly accused of murder who is forced to go into hiding with a beautiful and rich hostage (Seyfried). They soon begin a steamy romance.
Niccol (“Gattaca,” “S1m0ne”) directs from a script he wrote and hopes to begin production before the year ends. Eric Newman and Marc Abraham will produce.
