Amanda Seyfried Is "I'm.mortal"



    Not satisfied with being ubiquitous, Amanda Seyfried has decided to become "I'm.mortal," taking the lead role in the new sci-fi thriller.

    "I'm.mortal," from writer-director Andrew Niccol, tells of a future where everyone stops aging when they reach 25, reported Variety. Once you reach the magic age, time must be bought and banked -- those with enough wealth can live forever.

    Seyfried's character gets taken hostage by a man who's been accused of murdering someone for their time. It shouldn't surprise oyu to learn that the two fall for each other. The whole thing sounds like a cross between "Logan's Run" and "The Chase." The male lead remains uncast.

    Niccol has covered similar ground in "Gattaca," his 1997 feature-film debut, which starred Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman and Jude Law in a tale about a future world where social class is determined by your DNA. Niccol also wrote and directed the overlooked "Lord of War," which starred Nic Cage as an arms dealer.
