Never say never. There is much we take for granted today that a smart person from 100 years ago would be astonished by and never would have thought possible.

Yes we have been trying to "live forever" and in fact we have extended our lifespans quite impressively in just the last couple of centuries. I don't think the real issue is going to be "technical" in boosting human longevity to two or even three centuries. We are well on our way with the science. The REAL issues will be societal and emotional. As just a start, we'll have to totally rework Social Security!
