Blake Lively is moving into the movie-star big leagues. The Gossip Girl actress is currently filming scenes for The Age of Adaline which also stars Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford.
Lively plays Adaline, a woman who stops aging following an accident. The plot “follows the miraculous life of the 29-year-old title character, who stops aging after recovering from a near-fatal accident. Over the 20th century she embarks on an epic but isolated worldwide journey, keeping her secret, until she meets a man who forever alters her life.”
The role is the actress’s first since the 2012 film Savages. Academy Award-winning Burstyn, 81, will appear as Adaline’s mother. Michiel Huisman — best known for his role on Game of Thrones — also stars in the film, playing Blake Lively’s love interest in the upcoming film. Kathy Baker and Amanda Crew round out the cast.
Lively, 26, and Burstyn were spotted in the Gastown District of Vancouver, Canada late last week having lunch together as they prepared to shoot scenes for the movie scheduled to be released in 2015.
Seems like the Lively-Reynolds household is busy, busy, busy. Blake‘s husband Ryan Reynolds is slated to take on the role of a lawyer in the upcoming film The Woman in Gold with another Academy Award-winner, Helen Mirren.
