Blake Lively and Ellen Burstyn Join ‘The Age of Adaline’

Blake Lively joins Ellen Burstyn in The Age of Adaline After a number of delays and false starts, Lionsgate, Sidney Kimmell Entertainment and Lakeshore Entertainment have signed Blake Lively and Ellen Burstyn to star in The Age of Adaline.

The story centers on a 29-year-old woman who stops aging after recovering from an accident which nearly killed her. She embarks on a worldwide journey throughout the 20th Century, keeping her secret intact until she meets the man of her dreams.

Lee Toland Krieger (Celeste and Jesse Forever) is directing from a screenplay by J. Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz. Lakeshore's Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing alongside Sidney Kimmel. Production is scheduled to begin in March.

Here's what Lionsgate co-presidents Robert Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger had to say in a statement.

"We searched for the ideal director and stars. We believe that we have found them with Lee Toland Krieger, Blake Lively and Ellen Burstyn , and together they will tell the story of Adaline in a way that audiences won't forget."

The project once had Katherine Heigl attached to star, with Andy Tennant directing.

The Age of Adaline was released April 24th, 2015.
