Harrison Ford is the latest name to join the cast of The Age of Adaline.
Ford is set to star alongside Ellen Burstyn and Blake Lively in the drama/romance.
The movie will also see the actor team up with director Lee Toland Krieger for the first time. This is Krieger's first feature film since Celeste & Jesse Forever.
Lakeshore president Gary Lucchesi said in a statement: "We are very excited to be working with Harrison Ford.
"He's one of the great actors of our time, and will be perfect for the role of William in 'The Age of Adaline'."
The film tells the tale of a young woman named Adaline, who after recovering from a traumatic near-fatal accident, discovers she has stopped ageing.
However, after years of leading a solitary life and travelling across the globe, she meets a man for whom it might be worth losing her immortality.
We last saw Ford on the big screen in comedy Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
He has also completed work on The Expendables 3 - he is one of the new faces alongside Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas.
