Blake Lively is moving into the movie-star big leagues.
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.
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.
Blake looks beautiful in her retro look for the film.
