Jared Leto and Sarah Polley are searching for somebody, and apparently “Nobody” will do just fine.

Leto and Polley will star in the romantic drama “Mr. Nobody,” per The Hollywood Reporter.

Set in the not-so-distant future, the film follows Nemo Nobody (Leto) who at 120 years old, is the last mortal surrounded by happy immortals as he relives his real and imaginary years of marriage.

“Nobody” is described as a complex love story inspired by the “butterfly effect,” the notion that suggests a butterfly flapping its wings can cause a storm on the other side of the globe.

Production is scheduled to start next week, with shooting in Brussels, Montreal and Berlin.

Leto’s film credits include “Chapter 27” and “Lord of War.” The actor has been on the road with his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, in support of their platinum-selling CD, “A Beautiful Lie.”

Polley’s credits include “The Secret Life of Words,” “Dawn of the Dead” and “Go.”
