Tim Robbins is joining the Marjorie Prime, the sci-fi dramedy that will star Jon Hamm.
Michael Almereyda's film, an adaptation of last year's Pulitzer prize-nominated play by Jordan Harrison, follows an aging violinist named Marjorie, who, at age 85, finds that her memory is failing her. She hires a service that provides holographic recreations of deceased loved ones as their survivors would like them remembered, so she can spend time with her daughter Tess and son-in-law Jon, and with an imperfect copy of her deceased husband, Walter, as he looked in his 30s and 40s.
Geena Davis and Lois Smith also star in the film adaptation, which will begin principal photography this October in New York. Almereyda write the script.
Uri Singer, of BB Film Productions, is producing the film. Singer and Almereyda are collaborating for the second time, following up the film Experimenter.
