INCEPTION Star Cillian Murphy To Join I’M.MORTAL
Actor Cillian Murphy is looking to continue building off his success in “Inception” as he works to join the cast of “I’m.mortal.” The film is the newest sci-fi drama from Andrew Niccol.
Murphy is currently in the midst of final negotiations to join the cast alongside Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried. The film takes place in the near-future in a world in which time has taken over as the currency of society. Those with great wealth can live forever while the rest of society is left to barter for their immortality. Timberlake, who is still in negotiations, will star as a poor man named Will who is given a fortune overnight and becomes the target of a murder investigation. As Will runs from the law he kidnaps a young, wealthy woman played by Seyfried. Murphy will play the role of a Timekeeper agent in the film.
Murphy’s success in “Inception” builds upon his fruitful relationship with director Christopher Nolan. In addition to starring in Nolan’s “Inception,” Murphy played the role of Scarecrow in “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight.”
