Harrison Ford On For The Age Of Adaline
With Blake Lively and Ellen Burstyn

Harrison-Ford-On-For-The-Age-Of-Adaline

Unlike some of his contemporaries – yes, Bruce, we’re looking at you – Harrison Ford keeps hopping between genres. Recently we’ve seen him in comedy (Anchorman 2) and sci-fi (Ender’s Game) and he’s part of action extravaganza The Expendables 3. To tick 'romantic drama' off his list in its turn, he’s just joined the cast of Lakeshore Entertainment’s The Age Of Adaline.

Written by J. Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz (with some recent polishing by Allison Burnett), the film follows Blake Lively as 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, until she meets someone who forever changes her life. Though her exact role hasn’t been made clear, Ellen Burstyn is on board to co-star, with Lee Toland Krieger set to get the cameras rolling in March. Ford's precise role in the story isn't quite clear yet either, except that we know his character is called William (an elder version of someone Lively's Adaline falls for?).

"We are very excited to be working with Harrison Ford," said Lakeshore president Gary Lucchesi says in a statement picked up by The Hollywood Reporter. "He's one of the great actors of our time, and will be perfect for the role of William in The Age of Adaline."

The Expendables 3 is due to touch down here on August 15, and Ford is also still strongly rumoured to return to a certain science fiction franchise that helped make his name a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
