Kartheiser has time for thriller

Thesp joins Timberlake, Seyfried in film

Vincent Kartheiser (“Mad Men”) has joined the cast of Andrew Niccol’s untitled Justin Timberlake-Amanda Seyfried thriller about a society where no one ages beyond 25, except for those rich enough to buy time.

Cillian Murphy also stars in the New Regency pic, which 20th Century Fox will distribute.Kartheiser plays the father of Seyfried’s character, who is forced to choose between the daughter he loves and the oppressive time system that has made him rich.

Also joining the cast is Collins Pennie. He plays right-hand man to Timekeeper Raymond Leon (Murphy).

Project was previously titled “I’m.mortal.”

From a script by Niccol, storyline follows a rebel from the ghetto (Timberlake) who is falsely accused of murdering a wealthy man for his time, and goes on the run with a beautiful hostage (Seyfried). New Regency picked up the high-priority project last spring. Storyline seems to dictate a youthful cast.

Eric Newman and Marc Abraham are producing via their Strike Entertainment. Strike’s Kristel Laiblin is exec producing.
