Blake Lively Lives The Age Of Adaline
Ellen Burstyn also aboard

After several development convulsions – Katherine Heigl was attached to the lead for a while – romantic drama The Age Of Adaline finally appears to have settled down and headed for pre-production. Blake Lively and Ellen Burstyn are attached for the leads, with Lee Toland Krieger set to direct.

Written by J. Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz (with some recent polishing by Allison Burnett), the film follows the 29 year-old title character who mysteriously stops ageing after surviving a terrible accident.

Through the 20th century she starts an epic journey and tells no one her secret, at least until she meets someone who forever changes her life.

“They’re extraordinarily talented and perfect for telling the beautiful and timeless tale of The Age Of Adaline,” Lakeshore chief Tom Rosenberg said in a statement nabbed by Deadline. “Lee Toland Krieger is one of the most stylish young filmmakers working in Hollywood today. He is visually imaginative and possesses a strong narrative sense.”

Adaline should finally see cameras this March, assuming another roadblock doesn’t rear its head. Lively was last seen in Savages, while Burstyn showed up in Another Happy Day. She has Draft Day and The Calling set for release and is currently at work on Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.
