What if you were going to live forever with a spouse that you hated? Rick Yancey's short story When First We Were Gods tells the tale of a future society where the wealthy have attained immortality.

In this world, one rich man plots to murder his wife, so his mistress can have her eternal life. Like all good stories, things don't necessarily go as planned, and love and mortality battle it out. Hot for an immortal murder mystery, Lionsgate has tapped Aaron Eli Coleite to adapt the story to film, with Daniel Askill slated to direct.
