The film is Adaline, the Sidney Kimmel Entertainment?Lakeshore co-production that stars Heigl as the title character. Long ago, she was killed in a car accident, until a simultaneous lightning strike resuscitated her and physiologically locked her in her late 20s. Adaline lives a solitary existence until she meets a man worth losing her immortality to grow old with. Lansbury plays her daughter, who, in her mid-80s, needs her mother’s care as her health declines. J Mills Goodloe and Sal Paskowitz wrote a script that is getting revisions from Allison Burnett. The pic shoots in April and Summit will distribute. Fortitude-repped Lansbury is currently shooting Mr. Popper’s Penguins.
