Hayden Christensen "Jumps" Back into Sci-Fi

by | August 11, 2006 | Comments

After playing Anakin Skywalker in "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith," Hayden Christensen was expected to fade out of the limelight and eventually become a really easy Trivial Pursuit question, but it looks like Doug Liman wants the guy to anchor his new action flick.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Hayden Christensen is starring in "Jumper," Regency Enterprises’ big-budget thriller being directed by Doug Liman. … Christensen’s casting jump-starts the production, which was to have begun shooting earlier this summer but had been running idle. Tom Sturridge was to have played the lead role of David, which now will be played by Christensen, since a decision was made to go with a more prominent actor. Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Bell and Teresa Palmer remain with the production. The movie, which Regency and Fox hope to turn into a trilogy, will now shoot at month’s end in Toronto, Rome and Tokyo."

-Based on the novel by Steven Gould, "Jumper" is a sci-fi chase thriller that centers on a young man who has the awesome power of teleportability. Plus it’ll be a reunion between Mace Windu and Darth Vader, which I find kinda funny.
