Is Olivia Wilde Old Enough To Play Justin Timberlake’s Mom?

The answer to the question posed in the title is apparently so in this movie. In actuality, the scorching hot Olivia Wilde is younger at 27 than the 30-year-old singer-turned-actor Justin Timberlake. However, for the purpose of the upcoming sci-fi thriller film In Time, Wilde is playing the elder in the relationship. Specifically, Wilde plays Timberlake’s mother in a peculiar future universe where time has become the only relevant currency.

That’s right, dollars, euros, yen, etc., are all out of style in this brave new world and have been replaced with clocks. As if that’s not weird enough, the aging gene has been artificially stopped at age 25. The rich stay 25 for as long as they can afford it, the poor die young. The plot of the movie is that Wilde’s character saved enough time to have her son and allow him to catch up with her in age. Now her time is running out, meanwhile her son has been given 100 years as a gift. Timberlake’s character will rage against the system in which time is literally money.

Sounds crazy, right? You won’t have to think about it as much as you’d expect since this race against time comes complete with guns, high-octane chases and the like.

With the way things are going right now, we certainly hope nobody gets any bright ideas from this concept.

In Time will be released to theaters October 28.
