Amanda Seyfried wants to become immortal.
The actress is set to topline New Regency’s sci-fi action thriller, “I’m.mortal,” from writer-director Andrew Niccol. Twentieth Century Fox will distribute the film, also described as an action love story.
“I’m.mortal” revolves around a society in which aging stops at the age of 25–meaning that every role in “mortal” will be played by actors in their mid-20s.
In “I’m.mortal,” time has become the currency. Once you turn 25 and your aging gene turns off, you must buy and bank time. If you are rich enough, you can live forever. But if you run out of time, you are engineered to die automatically.
When a rebel from the ghetto is falsely accused of murdering a wealthy man for his time, he is forced to go on the run with a beautiful, rich hostage (Seyfried). Together, this duo rages against the system, living minute to minute. They discover that love is more powerful than all the time in the world.
Seyfried (“Mamma Mia!”) stars in Warner Bros.’ upcoming “Red Riding Hood,” from director Catherine Hardwicke. She was last in theaters with “Letters to Juliet” and “Dear John.”
