Blake Lively and Ellen Burstyn are set to star in Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and Lakeshore Entertainment’s romantic drama The Age of Adaline, reports Deadline. Production will start in March for the project, to be distributed by Lionsgate.

According to the site, “The Age of Adaline follows the miraculous life of the 29-year old title character, who stops aging after recovering from a near-fatal accident. Over the 20th century she embarks on an epic but isolated worldwide journey, keeping her secret, until she meets a man who forever alters her life.”

Lee Toland Krieger will direct the film. Sidney Kimmel is producing with Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi. Jim Tauber and Eric Reid will be executive producers. The film was written by J. Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz, with revisions by Allison Burnett.

The project has been in the works for a long time. At one point, Katherine Heigl was attached to star.
