Christensen Vanishing

08.27.2009

Hayden's T-shirt says it all...

Nope, Hayden Christensen isn't retiring from movie life, sorry if I gave anyone false hopes. Hey, if fan backlash for his Star Wars stint wasn't enough to run him out of town, nothing will. Might as well give him time to "grow", the least I can do for a fellow Canuck.

Hayden signed on to headline VANISHING ON SEVENTH STREET, about 5 survivors in a now-desolate town where residents have mysteriously disappeared with the arrival of "shadowy forms". Thandie Newton and the continually mis-used John Leguizamo are in final negotiations to join under THE MACHINIST director Brad Anderson. If THAT guy wants Hayden, he must've noticed something I haven't, so I'll trust him.

Filming for the indie project is slated for this October with no release date announced yet.

Extra Tidbit: I still have shivers from having watched what happens to Michael Ironside in THE MACHINIST. The kinda scene where you KNOW it's gonna happen but you can't stop watching in hopes it won't. And then it does and you just ...brrrrr.

SUPERB!!!!!!

Hayden is a very interesting actor. I liked Awake and Jumper. Very soon he will be a bigger movie star. He was also pretty good as Anakin!

It drives me nuts when people bag on Hayden Christensen because of the Star Wars prequels.

Those movies sucked because of George Lucas and George Lucas alone. Anything he touches turns to complete shit. Just look at Indiana Jones.

Hey Tony, if you have the time you ought to watch Life as a House and Shattered Glass. You know, since you write for a popular movie website. Christensen is amazing in those flicks. The fact that you hold him responsible in any way, shape or form for

The fact that you hold him responsible in any way, shape or form for the suckfest that was the Star Wars prequels only hurts the credibility of your opinion on anything entertainment related.

Sorry, but I'm sick of this guy getting the flack for George Lucas's incompetence.

Christensen just isn't an action star. He comes off whiny and unlikeable, like a poor mans James Franco. But he's incredible in Shattered Glass.

HEL-lo, Brad Anderson...I'm there. Plus if Thandie Newton is in it, even more reason to see it. AND it sounds nifty. AND I like Christensen and Leguizamo.

Me? I'm damn hip to THIS news!

Was a bit disappointed with Transiberian but The Machinist and Session 9 will keep me looking forward to Andersons work. Bring it on!
