Director Gabriele Muccino (Seven Pounds) is in talks to helm the romance flick Adaline. The story centers on a woman who hasn’t aged for 100 years but risks losing her immortality when she begins to fall for a man. Last summer, Katherine Heigl was attached to star with Andy Tennant (The Bounty Hunter) set to direct, but now both have dropped off the project. Variety reports that principal photography is scheduled to begin next January.
In the mean time, Muccino is in pre-production on Playing the Field (previously titled “Slide“) with Gerard Butler playing a father who coaches his son’s soccer team and starts getting a little too friendly with the mothers of the players. I would only find this premise interesting if Butler’s son was in his 40s.
