Michiel Huisman has joined romance-drama “The Age of Adaline” to portray the love interest of Blake Lively’s title character.

Harrison Ford and Ellen Burstyn have been announced previously as cast members. Shooting will begin in March with Lee Toland Krieger directing and Lionsgate set to release the film in the US.

“Adaline” will be produced by Sidney Kimmel, Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi. Jim Tauber and Eric Reid will exec produce.

The script is written by J. Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz, with revisions by Allison Burnett. Lively stars as a 29-year-old Adaline, who stops aging after recovering from a near-fatal accident and embarks on an isolated worldwide journey.

Huisman recently appeared in “World War Z” and HBO’s “Treme” and will next be seen in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” BBC’s “Orphan Black” and in Fox Searchlight’s “Wild.”

Huisman is represented by ICM Partners, Authentic and lawyer Frank Stewart.
