AMANDA SEYFRIED CAST FOR ANDREW NICCOL'S SF FILM "I'M.MORTAL". NEW PICS FROM ROMAN EPIC "CENTURION"

One of the best sf directors ever, Andrew Niccol ("Gattaca", "Simone") has found himself a lead actress for his new sf movie "I'm.mortal": Amanda Seyfried has signed to star in the film set in a future society where the aging process stops at 25 and time becomes a form of currency, with the rich essentially becoming immortal and the rest of society struggling to survive. A poor rebel murders a man for his "time" and goes on the run, taking Seyfried's character hostage, when they discover that love is more powerful than immortality. The lead actor hasn't been chosen yet.

I also have four new pictures from the Roman epic "Centurion" coming out August 27th. Starring Michael Fassbender, Olga Kurylenko and Dominic West, the film will follow the famous Ninth Legion which fights against the terrifying tribes known as the Picts in Northern Britain AD 117.

    she really is super cute and she really is the it girl of the moment (I even have a problem finding new pics of her to announce all the new projects she's signing :))

    And GATTACA was one of the best sf movies.

  6. The Niccol movie sounds ineresting...but it has to be careful to not be trite. A dystopian fantasy can be enlightening, or flat. We'll see!

  12. These both sound like interesting films. Look forward to them. I really like the Roman stuff. Gladiator was a big favorite for me and my wife.
