Earlier this morning I was thinking about how lucky sci-fi fans have been two summers in a row now and how great it would be if the summer streak started by District 9
and maintained by Inception
continued into next year. Then I was wondering about what films currently in the pipeline would be contenders to keep that trend of intelligent sci-fi going and the first title that came to mind was Andrew Niccol's I'm.mortal
. I hadn't thought about the film much since its initial announcement, but I began wondering whether or not it was on a smooth track for production.
How convenient, then, that I return home to find news
that Amanda Seyfried
has been cast as the female star of the film, which is set in a futuristic society where the aging process has been defeated entirely. However, to prevent overpopulation, years of life has replaced financial-backed currencies all over the world. Time Keepers are the police force that keep track of how much time each person is spending/receiving, presumably terminating all those who have no more years left in their time bank.
