by Catie Ragusa on September 5, 2013


FilmDistrict and Endgame Entertainment have added a new leading lady to the cast of their new sci-fi drama. Natalie Martinez has joined Ryan Reynolds in Selfless. She will play Reynolds’ wife in the thrilling tale of a terminally ill, elderly billionaire, who discovers that the secret to eternal life lies in a procedure which places his own consciousness into the body of a much younger, healthier man (Reynolds). In his journey to eternity, he learns that his new body was once a murder victim, and now he’s being hunted down.

Martinez is often remembered for her roles in CBS’ Under the Dome and 2012’s End of Watch starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña and Anna Kendrick. She also did an eleven-episode stint on CSI: NY earlier this year.

Shooting in New Orleans, Selfless was written by Carriers‘ Alex and David Pastor and is being directed by Tarsem Singh. The film also stars Ben Kingsley and Matthew Goode. Selfless is set for release September 26, 2014.
