TheWrap is reporting that Olivia Wilde (“House”) will play Justin Timberlake’s mom in Andrew Niccol’s untitled sci-fi thriller at 20th Century Fox. Wilde previously starred together with Timberlake in Alpha Dog.
She is joining a cast that also includes Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, Vincent Kartheiser and Collins Pennie.
The movie takes place in a future society where, thanks to a scientific breakthrough, no one has to age. To keep population in check, people stay alive as long as they can pay their way.
The story follows a rebel from the ghetto (Timberlake) who is falsely accused of murdering a wealthy man for his time, and goes on the run with a beautiful hostage (Seyfried).
Kartheiser plays the father of Seyfried’s character, who is forced to choose between the daughter he loves and the oppressive time system that has made him rich.
Cillian Murphy also stars, as does cast Collins Pennie, who plays right-hand man to Timekeeper Raymond Leon (Murphy).
