Olivia Wilde has joined the cast of Andrew Niccol's currently untitled sci-fi thriller for 20th Century Fox. According to The Warp, she will play Justin Timberlake's mother. The two actors previously worked together in the crime drama Alpha Dog.
How could Olivia Wilde possibly play the not-much-younger Justin Timberlake's mother? Because this story takes place in a future America, where a technological breakthrough has made it possible for humans to stop aging. Adults are able to stay young as long as they can pay the hefty price tag that comes along with immortality.
Justin Timberlake will portray a struggling rebel from the ghetto who gets falsely accused of killing a wealthy man for his time. Timberlake's character is forced to go on the run with a beautiful woman he takes hostage, played by Amanda Seyfried.
Cillian Murphy will play Timekeeper Raymond Leon, and Collins Pennie will play his right-hand man. Vincent Kartheiser has joined the cast as Amanda Seyfried's father, a man forced to choose between his daughter and the oppressive time-keeping system that he has profiteered off of for quite some time.
Shooting is scheduled to begin before the end of the year. A release date has not been announced at this time. But expect an early 2012 debut.
