Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried 'In Time': Still Photos From New Movie (PHOTOS)

Justin Timberlake has a lot of weapons at his disposal. He used one of them with Mila Kunis, and now, he'll fire away in a whole different manner with Amanda Seyfried.

The "Friends With Benefits" star will next take on the Andrew Niccols-written and directed, "In Time," a sci-fi action thriller about a world in which aging has been halted -- if you've got the cash. The rich buy and trade the world's new currency, time itself, in order to live forever, while the poor die at the hands of their robbed clocks. Timberlake will play a young man without the wealth to live forever who inherits the cash for the opportunity from a rich upper class man.

Accused of murder -- forbid the poor luck out sometimes -- Timberlake's character goes on the run, taking Seyfried's hostage. Spoiler alert: they fall in love amidst all the action and life risking.

The film, which boasts a big cast that includes Cillian Muphy, Vincent Kartheiser, Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Galecki, Olivia Wilde, and Matthew Bomer, hits theaters on October 28th.
