Amanda Seyfried Signs on to ‘I'm.mortal’

Amanda Seyfried joins I'm.mortal We reported back in April that filmmaker Andrew Niccol was setting up a brand new sci-fi project and now he has found his lead actress. Variety is reporting that Amanda Seyfried has signed on for the lead in I'm.mortal.

The story revolves around a future society where the aging process stops at 25 and time becomes a form of currency, with the rich essentially becoming immortal and the rest of society struggling to survive. A poor rebel murders a man for his "time" and goes on the run, taking Seyfried's character hostage, when they discover that love is more powerful than immortality. The male lead in the film hasn't been cast yet.

Niccol will be directing the film from his own script for New Regency and it was said that all of the actors in the film will be in their mid-20s. No production schedule was released for the film.

In Time was released October 28th, 2011.

    Ok, just stoked that this isn't another vampire movie. I thought from the title, it would be.

      I love directors with a stunning creative vision like Niccol. This promises to be a unique sf experience.

          Only movie I saw of Niccol's was Lord of War which I thought was good, but for this type of movie, Idk. I hope the cinematography is good for this future based movie.

              Interesting idea, and as a few have mentioned, Seyfried's involvement is an added bonus.
