Acclaimed Writer Harlan Ellison Sues The Makers of ‘In Time’ Over Copyright Infringement

The release of the upcoming sci-fi thriller In Time has just come across an obstacle that no one in their right mind ever wants to encounter, and his name is Harlan Ellison.

The prolific, award-winning writer who has been working his literary majesty in print, film, and on television over the course of nearly six decades has filed a lawsuit in California federal alleging that the 20th Century Fox film, which stars Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried and is written and directed by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War), is an uncredited adaptation of his classic 1965 short story “Repent Harlequin! Said The Ticktockman”.

As it turns out, the footage shown at Comic–Con for the new Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried sci–fi thriller, In Time, that we described to you earlier, has now been released online in the form of an extended trailer.

As described before, the footage shows Timberlake as a man named Will, who’s 28 years old and only has one day to live because humans can now live forever but, to maintain the population, are genetically engineered to die one year after they turn 25 unless you’re able to keep adding more time to your life, making it the currency that has replaced money. When Will meets a wealthy man with over a century of life, his life will change forever, and he’ll begin a mission to bring down this cruel and tough new way of life with a “Timekeeper” named Leon (Cillian Murphy) hot on his trail.

SDCC 2011: Andrew Niccol’s ‘In Time’ Panel; Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried Show Time Is Literally Money
  |  @   |  

Almost a year ago, we were beginning to hear about a new science fiction thriller called I’m.mortal, which was putting together a cast that included Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, and Cillian Murphy. The movie certainly sounded interesting, and thanks to this year’s San Diego Comic–Con, we now know it looks pretty darn interesting, as well!

The movie, whose title has since been changed to In Time, is set in a future where we’ve perfected everlasting life and everyone stops aging at the age of 25, but in order to protect from overpopulation, time is now used in lieu of money as a currency. This leaves the rich to live as long as they’d like, and the less–fortunate fighting to keep living. Everyone is genetically engineered to die one year after turning 25, so if you’re unable to replenish your time, you will not last long.

Keep reading for more and to see some images from the panel!
