Gattaca Helmer Niccol Proves He’s “Mortal”

“Gattaca” and “Lord of War” filmmaker Andrew Niccol will pen and direct the sci-fi thriller “I’m.Mortal” which New Regency is in negotiations with Strike Entertainment to pick up reports Heat Vision.

The story is set in the near future where medical science has managed to halt the ageing process. As a result time has become the new currency with the rich essentially able to become immortal.

The action follows a poor young man who inherits a fortune of time, but too late to stop his mother from dying. He soon ends up on the run from a corrupt police force called the ‘time keepers’.

Marc Abraham and Eric Newman will produce. Filming kicks off this Summer in Los Angeles.
