August 9th, 2010

Cillian Murphy is in the final stages neotiations to star in 'I'm.mortal'.

The 'Inception' actor would work alongside Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake in the film, which tells the tale of a world where the ageing gene has been switched off and time becomes a currency, allowing the rich to live forever.

Murphy would play an officer from an organisation named The Timekeepers, according to Heat Vision Blog.

Timberlake is still in negotiations to play the leading male role in the project - directed by Andrew Niccol and produced by Marc Abraham and Eric Newman - while Amanda is locked to play the character of a young heiress.

The sci-fi movie is due to begin shooting in September ahead of a cinematic release in 2011.

Irish-born Murphy is currently working on a number of projects, including 'Hippie Hippie Shake' alongside British beauty Sienna Miller and 'At Swim-Two-Birds' with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Colin Farrell, both of which are due for release in 2010.
