Justin Timberlake was at Comic-Con last weekend disguised as Ernie from Sesame Street, and he also participated in the panel for sci-fi flick In Time (but mostly he was Ernie). It also stars Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Cillian Murphy, and Alex Pettyfer and was written and directed by Andrew Niccol, the writer of The Truman Show and the writer/director of the totally underrated Gattaca.
Last time we wrote about this it was titled I’m.mortal (not to be confused with Will.I.Am) and Niccol was selling the script. Here’s the synopsis from the time:
The story is set in the not-too-distant future where the aging gene has been switched off. To avoid overpopulation, time has become the currency and the way people pay for luxuries and necessities. The rich can live forever, while the rest try to negotiate for their immortality. The protagonist is a poor young man who comes into a fortune of time [...] He ends up on the run from a corrupt police force known as “time keepers.” [HeatVision]
I removed a potential spoiler from the synopsis and should mention that there may be spoilers in the long trailer after the jump. I’m really not liking the trend of making trailers into an outline of seemingly every major plot point from the first 100 pages of the script. But here’s that trailer and some posters, all the same. Maybe if we stare at them really hard Justin Timberlake will go back to making more music.
