Hollywoodnews.com: It sounds like “Inception” actor Cillian Murphy will stay in the sci-fi genre for another interesting adventure.

The Irish star reportedly is in final negotiations to join Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake in “I’m.mortal,” a sci-fi drama from Andrew Niccol, director of “Gattaca” and “Lord of War,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Set in the not-too-distant future, “I’m.mortal” imagines a world where the aging gene has been switched off. Time now acts as mankind’s new currency, so we can avoid overpopulation of our planet. The rich can live forever, and the rest try to negotiate for their immortality.

Timberlake would play Will, a poor man who suddenly inherits a fortune, making him the target of a murder investigation. Murphy would play an officer from an organization known as Timekeepers.

According to the story, Niccol – who also penned “The Truman Show” – would start shooting in late September start for a 2011 release.
