Hayden Christensen will decipher The Genesis Code

When you see the name Hayden Christensen, you probably think of a globetrotting mystery-solving ex-government agent, right? No?

Well, you're going to. The face behind Vader will star in THE GENESIS CODE, an upcoming indie thriller based on the novel by John Case. David R. Ellis (FINAL DESTINATION 2, SNAKES ON A PLANE) is directing for Myriad Pictures.

As the press release states: "The story follows a former national security expert, played by Christensen, who, while investigating the murder of his only sister and her young son, discovers that a religious sect called The Shadow of the Cross may be involved. With the help of his sister’s friend Ana, they follow the clues to a clinic in the mountains of Italy, where a terrifying secret experiment has been conducted – successfully. The results are so threatening to the foundation of the Church that they will do anything to keep it from being revealed."

Christensen will next be seen with Paul Walker and Matt Dillon in the heist movie TAKERS.

Extra Tidbit: Christensen's first feature film appearance was a small part in John Carpenter's underappreciated IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS.
