Michiel Huisman will star alongside Blake Lively in 'The Age of Adaline'.

The 'World War Z' actor has been cast as the 'Gossip Girl' star's love interest Ellis in the romantic drama helmed by Lee Toland Krieger, who is delighted to have him on board.

The American filmmaker said: ''Michiel Huisman is the rare breed of actor who radiates charm and sophistication while possessing a unique, enigmatic kind of vulnerability. He's the perfect addition as Ellis, and I couldn't be more excited to have him join our cast.''

The supernatural romance tale is a co-production between Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and Lakeshore Entertainment with Sidney Kimmel, Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi attached as producers.

Jim Tauber and Eric Reid executive producing for the film which is expected to begin filming in March.

The script was written by Mills Goodloe and Salvador Paskowitz, with revisions by Allison Burnett.

The long-stalled movie - which was first planned in 2010 - recounts the life of the 29-year old titular character Adaline (Lively), who stops aging after recovering from a near-fatal accident.

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.

'The Age of Adaline' is set for an all-star cast which includes Harrison Ford and Ellen Burstyn.
