Well, it’s about time!

After living the newlywed life with Ryan Reynolds and saying farewell to the upper East Side, Blake Lively is ready to dive back into her acting career!

The blonde bombshell has signed on to replace Katherine Heigl as the leading lady in The Age of Adaline alongside Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn.

Why Katherine was dropped?! We have NO clue, but her loss is definitely Blake’s gain!

Blake will transform into a character described as an ageless beauty (obviously) born at the turn of the 20th century who STOPS aging after a nearly fatal accident. She travels the world for centuries UNTIL she falls in love with a man she wants to grow old with.

And we’re VERY sure Blake’s love interest will be as anatomically perfect as she is!

Sci-fi, romance, drama, hot bods?! Sign us up!!
