She has reportedly replaced Katherine Heigl in the movie and will feature alongside Ellen Burstyn, reports eonline.com.
The 26-year-old will play the role of a woman who was born at the turn of the 20th century and stops aging after a near-death accident.
Her character will then be seen going on a worldwide excursion without divulging her secret.
This will be Lively's first movie after exchanging vows with actor Ryan Reynolds.
Heigl, who was originally cast for the role, dropped out in November 2010.
