Olivia Wilde joins the Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried thriller
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Last week we reported that Vincent Kartheiser joined the cast of the untitled sci-fi thriller with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfriend. Today we learn that Olivia Wilde (ALPHA DOG and YEAR ONE) will be starring in the film as Timberlake’s mother. The film is set in the future where aging does not occur if you are wealthy and can purchase time. Timberlake’s character is accused of murdering a man for his time and while on the run takes a hostage (Seyfried). Kartheiser plays Seyfried’s father who has to “choose between the daughter he loves and the oppressive time system that has made him rich.” The film will be directed by Andrew Niccol.
With all these stars and Cillian Murphy, this film could be a really fun time. However, as with all sci-fi thrillers, one must be careful to not go too far into the realm of silly or far-fetched. Niccol directed a winner with GATTACA, but then again, he also directed a dud in S1M0NE.
