Amanda Seyfried to star in sci-fi romance that's hopefully better than 'The Island'

Amanda-Seyfried

Image Credit: Ian Gavan/Getty ImagesAmanda Seyfried is set to star in I’m.mortal, a sci-fi drama from Gattaca director Andrew Niccol, The Wrap reports. It’s said to be set in “a society where people stop aging at 25-years-old and time has become the currency, meaning the rich are immortal while the rest of the population struggles to survive.” Seyfried’s character is taken hostage by a rebel who’s forced to go on the run after he’s falsely accused of killing a wealthy man for his time. “Together, they rage against the system, living minute to minute, and discover that love is more powerful than all the time in the world.”

I like it. I’m curious to see how they physically represent time, if indeed they must. Seyfried’s costar has yet to be named. Let’s assume he needs to be in his mid-twenties as well. Who would you hire? I’d phone Emile Hirsch, and if he wasn’t free, Zach Roerig (The Vampire Diaries, Fright Night Lights). You could also look into Shia LaBeouf and Robert Pattinson.
