House actress Olivia Wilde has reportedly landed another feature film role - playing Justin Timberlake's mother.

The actress, best known for portraying Dr Remy 'Thirteen' Hadley in the medical drama, will star opposite the SexyBack pop star in Andrew Niccol's film, previously titled I'm. mortal, said Entertainment Weekly.

While Justin is 29 in real life, and Olivia only 26, the thriller is based on a society where ageing stops at 25 and time has become the currency, so a 50-year-old could look 26.

Justin's character Will is falsely accused of murdering a wealthy man for his time, and is forced to go on the run with a hostage, played by Amanda Seyfried.

Cillian Murphy plays one of the time keepers, out to stop Will.

Olivia is already set to star opposite Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman in comedy The Change-Up, in addition to her House role. She will next be seen on the big screen in Disney's highly anticipated Tron, followed by Jon Favreau's Cowboys Vs Aliens.
