Justin Timberlake has cut off his signature curly locks (again) for his latest movie. The singer-turned-actor is busy shooting a sci-fi thriller, which was formerly titled, Im. Mortal opposite his Alpha Dog co-star Amanda Seyfried. Some photos have popped up online (via JustJared) that feature Timberlake manhandling Seyfried. What are these two up to?
The story for the film takes place in a future society where people can’t age and can only stay alive as long as they pay. Seyfried is playing the role of a woman kidnapped by a man whose time has expired so he goes on the run, taking her with him. Justin Timberlake plays the kidnapper named Will Salas, while Cillian Murphy stars as an officer from an organization known as the Timekeepers and he’s described as “precise as the time he keeps.”
To make things even more interesting, we have Olivia Wilde (another Alpha Dog alum) in the role of Timberlake’s mother and Vincent Kartheiser playing Seyfried’s father! Yes, this is a trippy Blade Runner-esque type of thriller. The movie is directed by Andrew Niccol and is scheduled to hit theaters in 2012.
What do you think of Timberlake and Seyfried’s look in the film? Are you interested in seeing it?
