Livingston recently appeared off-Broadway in the Neil LaBute play "In a Dark, Dark House," starred in the short-lived TV series "Standoff" and acted in the films "Little Black Book" and "Adaptation."
"Flightplan" director Robert Schwentke will helm Livingston’s latest film, which is to begin shooting next month in Toronto, the Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday.
In the movie, Bana plays a Chicago librarian who carries a gene that causes him to involuntarily time travel. He must help his wife cope with the many complications his condition causes.
Livingston will play the librarian's friend, a liberal attorney who works for non-profit organizations, the trade paper said.
"The Notebook" scribe Jeremy Leven and "Ghost" writer Bruce Joel Rubin wrote the screenplay.
