Hayden Christensen on board while John Leguizamo and Thandie Newton are still in negotiations to join the indie thriller "Vanishing On 7th Street" says The Hollywood Reporter.
The Machinist and Session 9 (both great pics) director Brad Anderson helms and co-wrote the story set in a once-thriving city where shadowy forms cause residents to inexplicably disappear. Five survivors fight to stay alive while grappling with the meaning of existence.
Christensen is playing a reporter. Newton would play a desperate nurse and Leguizamo a subway operator.
Anthony Jaswinski (Killing Time), co-wrote the script while Hayden's brother Tove Christensen Celine Rattray and Lawrence Mattis will produce.
Anderson has also done great things on TV's Fringe...HC has done lots of these kinda quirky sci-fi pics-like Jumper and Awake...His best turn though was indeed playing a journalist in Shattered Glass. Does the combo mean a better pic...? Time will tell...But with Anderson on it--the answer should be yes.
Shooting is set to begin on October 12th
