Just "In Time"

I'm intrigued by Andrew Niccol's upcoming science-fiction thriller "In Time," but only because of its wide-ranging, very interesting young ensemble. For me, it has the vague, middling trappings of the fickle "Repo Men" or the rote "Surrogates", yet that cast, with supporting roles from promising TV actors Vincent Kartheiser ("Mad Men"), Matthew Bomer ("White Collar") and dependable veterans like Cillian Murphy, has me curious. 

Plus, these are somewhat untested waters for Justin Timberlake in the action genre, in addition to his co-star Amanda Seyfried, who can ill-afford her second massive flop of the year, but with a less-than-stellar title and working from the even more dubious confines of the sci-fi genre, I wonder.
