Blake Lively joins The Age of Adaline, a supernatural romance film
A new film, surrounding a romance-story on a supernatural level, will star Blake Lively and Ellen Burstyn, the project is under Lakeshore Entertainment with Sidney Kimmel producing the film. As for the rest of the production crew, Lee Toland Krieger has been chosen to direct with a script by J. Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz.
Lionsgate, the studio that seems to be on a role since snapping up ‘The Hunger Games’, will handle U.S. distribution. The story is rather unique, centered around the life of young woman that can not age. This occurs after the woman is an a freak-accident, the agelessness comes with sever isolation and after meeting a man has to decide whether immortality is worth her constant isolation. It’s almost like a vampire movie, without the biting and vampires.
Originally it was Katherine Heigl that was chosen to appear in the film, this was back in 2010 during the film’s first attempt in production. At that time Andy Tenant was directing.
