The romantic drama The Age Of Adaline has been through a couple of incarnations, but it is now set to go into production in March as a co-production between Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and Lakeshore Entertainment. The Town‘s Blake Lively is set to star with Ellen Burstyn, with Lee Toland Krieger directing. Lionsgate is set to release the film domestically.
Scripted by J. Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz, with revisions by Allison Burnett, The Age Of Adaline 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. Lee Toland Krieger is directing, and Sidney Kimmel is producing with Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi. Jim Tauber and Eric Reid will be executive producers.
“They’re extraordinarily talented and perfect for telling the beautiful and timeless tale of The Age Of Adaline,” Lakeshore CEO Rosenberg said of Lively and Burstyn. Added Lakeshore prexy Lucchesi: “Lee Toland Krieger is one of the most stylish young filmmakers working in Hollywood today. He is visually imaginative and possesses a strong narrative sense.”

Gossip Girl: Episode Screencaps: 6.07 – Save the Last Chance
Blake Lively has signed on to star opposite Sacha Baron Cohen in an untitled biopic about the life of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. The film, which is set to begin production this April, is rumoured to have Les Miserables and The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper circling the director’s chair.
Lively has reportedly signed on to play Mercury’s girlfriend, Mary Austin, in the film. This will be the first post Gossip Girl role for the actress, which she wrapped last November. Recently, Lively has been building her dramatic acting profile by starring in several heavy films including The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, Ben Affleck’s The Town and Oliver Stone’s Savages.
Personally, I think Lively is a great actress and incredibly charismatic. I enjoy her work a lot and I’m excited to see her breaking away from her Gossip Girl bubble by starting to craft a name for herself in the film world.
As for this upcoming biopic, I can’t say that I’m on board with the choice to have Hooper direct, but I do like the idea of Cohen playing Mercury and Lively playing Austin. I can see them making a great on screen couple as something tells me that they’ll have a lot of chemistry between them.
Mercury had a very interesting life and bringing his story to the big screen is going to require as much talent as possible. So far, I think the producers of this one are doing well and I can’t wait to see who else signs on in the coming months.
