Justin Timberlake to Star in ‘I'm.mortal’?

Justin Timberlake to Star in I'm.mortal? Buried within a Deadline Hollywood story, which mainly dealt with Justin Timberlake and Elton John denying they have been offered a job as an American Idol, comes some intriguing film news. The site reported that Justin Timberlake has also been offered the lead role in the sci-fi film I'm.mortal.

We reported a few weeks back that actress Amanda Seyfried had won a lead role in the film and it seems Timberlake has been offered the other lead. The story takes place in a future where the aging gene has been eliminated and immortality is granted to those who can afford it, with "time" essentially becoming society's currency. Seyfried's character gets taken hostage by what would be Timberlake's character, who murdered a man for his "time" and goes on the run.

Andrew Niccol is directing the film from his own script and it was previously said that the director is seeking actors in their mid-20s for the film. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further developments on the casting of I'm.mortal as soon as we have more information.

In Time was released October 28th, 2011.

    sounds like the right kind of film for him. Some actors just don't which films they should be in. This might be quite good.

          I really like him as an actor. He's not just a 'pop star trying to act'. He's actually good. And this sounds intriguing. I like Amanda Seyfried and Andrew Niccol seems to come up with some interesting stuff.

            Agreed with @Diaigma. If he pulls it off there, then I will definitely watch this. The plot alone is intriguing.

                    Is it common for music artists to head to film?

                          This is great news. Not only that ANdrew Niccol always makes great sf movies with intelligent plots, but Justin and Amanda, being both adorable and talented, could become the cutest film couple ever.

                            @Err, you might be thinking of Alpha Dog, which he was great in. I am glad to see him get this, I think he has a lot of potential as an actor.
