Inception player Cillian Murphy has joined Amanda Seyfried in Andrew Niccol’s dramatic sci-fi I’m.mortal.

The film is set in the near future, where it's now possible to purchase immortality (if you’re rich enough). The fall-out of that is the Earth's over-population laws are governed by those rich enough to live the longest.

When a broke bloke called Will comes into some money, he’s accused of murder and hits the road with an heiress (Seyfried).

Murphy will play an officer from a group called the Timekeepers, who it is assumed will be involved in tracking down Will - a character that Justin Timberlake is reportedly in negotiations for.

Niccols – who also directed Gattaca and Lord Of War – is expected to start shooting the movie in September, though he’s also attached to helm the remake of The Host.

Would you like to be immortal?

      I'm personally partial to the title; it's the Timekeepers that irks me a bit. This New Zealand Truman Show didn't have Ed Harris, though...
