Finally some movie news! After a one year hiatus to spend time with her hubby, Blake Lively is returning to the screen in the movie The Age Of Adaline.
The part, which was once earmarked for Katherine Heigl, is of an ‘ageless beauty’ born at the turn of the century, Deadline announced on Wednesday.
Last month the Gucci model told Vogue UK, ‘There’s a movie I’m really excited about… and one of the most enticing parts of it is that it spans from the 1900s until now.’The fashion is amazing, and my character gets to experience all of the different time periods and tell the story through fashion.’It’s not a movie about fashion, but it’s an integral part of who she is and the whole story.’ Ellen Burstyn co-stars and cameras start rolling in March.
Deadline reports Blake’s character stops aging at 29 when she’s in 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,’ Michael Fleming Jr. reports for the site.
‘We searched for the ideal director and stars. We believe that we have found them with Lee Toland Krieger, Blake and Ellen, and together they will tell the story of Adaline in a way that audiences won’t forget,’ studio chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. who are overseeing the film, told Deadline.
Katherine Heigl, who The Hollywood Reporter slammed last month for her ‘bad behavior,’ may have dropped out of Adaline to start a new TV series.
‘A lot has changed for me in the last year!’ she told Vogue UK.’I got married, I finished Gossip Girl after six years, I had my first break in a while and I’ve been working on this company… now I’m in a different place.’
Blake was spotted this week touching down with her husband at an airport in New Orleans, Louisiana. That’s where Ryan is filming Selfless, about a wealthy old man who transforms his consciousness into the body of a much younger man who has a past full of secrets.
