Rumors of Hayden in Neuromancer Movie

Even though Hayden has declined the opportunity to talk about this project in interviews and his name has been removed from the cast at Internet Movie Database (IMDB), rumors still persist that he will play Case in the big screen adaptation of the novel by William Gibson.

A poster has surfaced giving rise to more speculation by fans, some anxiously awaiting and some dreading the upcoming movie, which is being produced by Seven Arts Pictures. It doesn't help that Seven Arts still has Hayden's name in the synopsis even though it also removed the casting from the page.

[EDIT: August 15, 2008 - "Seven Arts Pictures has updated the Neuromancer Synopsis and has removed Hayden's name. They also changed the main character's name, which had been spelled "Cage", to "Case".]

In May, Peter Hoffman of Seven Arts Pictures brought the project to Cannes Film Market as part of the company's slate of films with Indiewire reporting that director Joseph Kahn had been signed to helm with a cast announcement coming soon. There has been no casting announcement since then. Indiewire's Cannes Biz Daily also reported William Gibson to be writing the script.

[EDIT: August 1, 2008 - William Gibson posted to his blog today that he is not writing the screenplay for Neuromancer.]

I understand fans who are eagerly anticipating the movie might want to speculate to help pass the time until something is confirmed but at present that's all it is....old rumors and speculation.

Hayden Gets Audition With Spielberg

Apparently Hayden never made it to the Fontana Auto Club Speedway yesterday as part of a planned media and fan event with NASCAR driver Casey Mears. According to the OC Register, Hayden is "not ready to give up his day job" and when Steven Spielberg invites you to an audition just before leaving for the track what do you say yes.

I know fans were probably disappointed but things happen and it's understandable that work must comes first. We can't wait for more news and wish Hayden all the best.

Perhaps a new helmet for Darth Vader
July 31, 2008|By DAMIAN DOTTORE

Actor Hayden Christensen is interested in driving a stock car, but apparently he's not ready to quit his day job just yet to pursue a NASCAR dream.

Christensen, who gained fame playing Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, in the Star Wars saga, was supposed to be at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana driving go-karts at the track with Hendrick Motorsports Sprint Cup driver Casey Mears. According Auto Club Speedway president Gillian Zucker, Christensen in very interested in launching a racing career.

Christenen's kart was ready for him, sitting outside the track, which is built in the speedway's parking lot. But the driver was MIA.

Zucker said Steven Spielberg invited Christensen to an audition on Wednesday, not too long before he was supposed to head out to the track.

Hayden on Clone Wars at MTV, Virgin Territory, Jumper tops DVD Charts

I've been sitting on this since last week because I didn't like the game of "gotcha" that seemed to be played by an MTV interviewer because of Hayden's response to a question about Star Wars: The Clone Wars. There have been some interesting developments since then.

MTV put up a video interview with Hayden last week (video below) that was supposed to be about the promotion of Jumper being released on DVD. As most interviews go,other topics came up and Hayden was asked if he's going to find it weird hearing someone else voice Anakin in Star Wars: Clone Wars and if he had wanted to do the voice himself. Hayden's answer seemed to show that maybe he didn't have complete information about the movie and MTV focused on that when putting up the interview. The write-up with the video article was unfair, I think.

The Answers "Wishful thinking..."

In answer to the MTV article, The commented on the interview and it's something I've had at the back of my mind for the last few months as well. The article is clearly stated as opinion so take it all, my article too, with a grain of salt. There are a lot of what ifs in the The article but knowing how secretive every Star Wars project is, I've been wondering myself if there are some surprises coming with the release of The Clone War's movie in August. Lucasfilm hasn't actually confirmed who is voicing any of the characters. Click here for article at The

The Update "I can't talk about it."

The has an update from Star Wars Weekend that is just a tad mysterious. When asked by a fan if Ewan McGregor and Hayden would be doing voices for Clone Wars, Matthew Wood would only say, "I can't talk about it". Matthew Wood is one of the voice actors listed in the cast on IMDB as the voice of General Grievious which Wood also could not talk about when asked. This is starting to sound like the mystery movie where you've already figured out the ending but you can't wait because it's gonna be good folks. You can read that article by clicking here for The

I think George Lucas is such a mischievous kid at heart when it comes to surprising fans and Hayden was smiling a little too broadly while answering that question from the MTV interviewer. Canary du jour, Hayden? A little crow later for MTV? I can but dream.

Just a little conspiracy theory to help us pass the time.

Jumper tops dvd charts

Jumper teleported it's way to the top spot in DVD rentals and sales for the week ending 6-15-08.

It's a Hard-knock Life for Hayden Christensen

Hayden Christensen cast as David Copperfield.

There is only very early information on the latest adaptation of the Dickens classic. Velvet Octopus Films lists Hayden Christensen in the role of the adult David Copperfield in this latest film verson written by Peter Howitt and Douglas McFerran.

The $30 million project is to be produced by Generator Entertainment along with Howitt and producing partner Richard Johns (Flaming Pie Films). Funding is already lined up from the U.K. Film Council's Premiere Fund and pre-sales from the Cannes international film market.

What does Richard Johns think of bringing a new "David Copperfield" to the big screen? "This is a very fresh adaptation of the novel, not the chocolate-boxy, stolid version of Dickens that we are used to," Johns said. "It won't be mannered or reverential. With Dickens, filmmakers have been trapped in this place where you have caricatured characters, but Peter wants to deal with them like real people."

The movie, set to begin filming this fall in Canada, will be directed by Peter Howitt with a cast including Rowan Atkinson, Colin Firth, Julie Walters, Kevin McNally, Dominic Cooper and Simon Pegg.

Hayden Christensen Birthday Predictions


Happy Birthday Hayden!

Hayden is one of the good guys and we want to wish him the best of everything today on his birthday and in the years to come.

Besides being an interesting and talented actor he has stayed true and focused on his work and being grounded in his family life away from the bright lights of Hollywood.

Hayden, you have fans of all ages from around the world who support and admire you and wish for you a very long and prosperous career.

So here are some predictions for our Birthday Guy:

One Day we'll hear these words:

Winner for Best Actor
Winner Best Director
Winner for Best Screenplay
Winner Best Writer

And More Predictions:

We will hear you sing and play guitar and/or piano on screen someday.

You will not play the role of a monk in a monastery. (All the ladies out there applaud.)

You will do a romantic comedy that will be the envy of Steve Carrel, Zack Braff and Jim Carrey.

Piggy pals Buddy and Petunia will learn to roll over and play dead. (with their little tails wagging with delight)

There's a Hitchcock remake in your future.

Hitchcock won't direct.

Next time you and Jake Gyllenhaal are up for the same role, you'll get the part.

Jake will direct.

George Lucas will call. It won't have anything to do with a lightsaber. Something about needing advice about a tractor at Skywalker Ranch.

Hayden Christensen will not get one single speeding ticket in his next Bullrun rally.


Happy Birthday Hayden!!


I'm a fan and you're a fan so you're welcome to add your birthday wishes and predictions below.

Jumper Sequel Seems Likely

Hayden Christensen may yet again be a teleporter if the Internet Movie Database's info is accurate. While searching earlier today for news on director Doug Liman, I found Jumper 2 listed on IMDB as one of Hayden's upcoming projects.

The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) has added Jumper 2 to it's movie pages and shows a projected release date of 2011. IMDB's status for the film is "announced" and "in development" and was last updated March 12, 2008. No cast is listed but listed are director, Doug Liman and writers Steven Gould (novel) and Simon Kinberg. You can keep track of Jumper 2 by clicking here to go to IMDB.

The Toronto Star reported earlier this year that Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Bell had all signed for two sequels, which will only happen if Jumper is a box office success.

The Jumper 2 Message Board is also online and active at IMDB and you'll find a permanent IMDB link on Hayden Christensen Fan News in the right column of the main site for handy access to Jumper 2 and all of Hayden's movie pages on IMDB.

Hayden Christensen and Jumper - Simply Awesome!

You know what? The fight is gone. I no longer feel the need to scrap with the film critic's sad, angry reviews of Jumper. I went to see it... and it was simply awesome.

You have to wonder at the vitriol spewed at Hayden Christensen by male 'film critics'. Up until very recently, I thought it was because they were jealous, or sadly lacking in the knowledge of who exactly created Star Wars.

Maybe they're not as jealous as they are... AFRAID.

These Cheetos munching losers who wrote their diatribes of Hayden's lack of acting chops while sprawled lazily at their computers in their saggy, stained, tidy (not) whities, are afraid. Yes, they are afraid of him. Hayden Christensen is an acting hurricane, a force to be reckoned with in a beautifully wrapped, kindhearted, intimidatingly intelligent, unafraid-to-be-effeminate-but-more-masculine-than-most, package.


I loved this movie. I am astounded at the critics reaction to this film. Do they have something against the writers? Doug Liman? What? I can tell you one thing... we did not see the same film. I saw a meticulously laid out story line, a great script, great acting, fantastic cgi, and fun, fun, fun. The audience's reaction to this film was such a trip. They ooooed and ahhhhed, gasped, laughed and giggled in the right places... they were either flat against the back of their seat, hands grasping tightly at their friends' arms, or dangling from the edge of their seat... so engrossed they were at the thrill ride that is Jumper.

It was known from the beginning that this might be a trilogy, so why are the critics confused by the danglers that were so well done? And why on earth would a film critic expose their sub-intelligence by saying the characters were not fleshed out enough, that there is no back story, "why do they jump and how". Did they not see WHY David was able to jump at the beginning of the movie? That's how it started PEOPLE... his desperation to leave a terrifying situation, fear. After that, the park scenes show how he learned how to bridle his innate talent. I'm sure Doug would have wanted to stretch some scenes out and really have fun with it, but it was edited so well, that we, the audience, don't need anything further to understand what is going on... or who David is, or WHY he can jump. The 'danglers', the parts we don't know, we don't need to know until the sequel. And God I hope there are TWO, I loved Jumper that much. It is quite evident that the critics do not want any more of Jumper, or Hayden.

I remember watching a film critics panel discussion on tv long ago, saying that the audience is not dumb, that a film shouldn't have to explain in detail what the camera can explain in one or two shots. They so wished that Hollywood would stop 'dumbing down' movies. I was thrilled at this!! What happened? Is this next generation of film critics THAT stupid?

I have to mention Max Thieriot. He's on his way, people. This kid was great!!

Hayden Christensen's Jumper - What Fans Say

Jumper Teleports To Top Boxoffice Spot

"Jumper" surprised many critics in it's President's Day weekend opening and teleported straight to number one with a comfortable box office lead over two other anticipated movies, "The Spiderwick Chronicles" and "Step Up 2 The Streets".

The Doug Liman directed action-adventure sci-fi movie starring Hayden Christensen debuted over a long US holiday weekend releasing on Thursday, Valentine's Day. The final totals for the weekend's domestic box office came in with Jumper at number 1 with $32,092,991 with a more than comfortable lead over the number 2 movie, "The Spiderwick Chronicles", with $24,740,537. "Step Up 2 The Streets" grabbed the number 3 spot with $22,125,429.

"Jumper" now enters the record books, coming in at number 5 on the list of all time highest grossing box office movies, premiering on President's Day weekend. "Jumper" found an audience despite being trashed by critics, earning $67.6 million worldwide in it's first week in release.

Jumper Fans Jump the Critics

Critics came down hard on the movie and it's star Hayden Christensen, naming anything from script problems and plot holes to lack of chemistry and general lack of talent.

What some critics fail to realize is that Hayden Christensen has already found an audience and "Jumper" had a cast that people were very much looking forward to seeing, a cast including Samuel L. Jackson, Rachel Bilson, Jamie Bell and Diane Lane and an anticipated movie directed by Doug Liman.

More and more audiences are making up their own minds about actors and movies because movie reviews trying to convince them not to like something they already like or have an interest in is beside the point.

Hayden is appealing as the "every-man", down-on-his-luck character, David Rice, who is transported from ordinary to extraordinary circumstances when he finds he can literally teleport from bullies and survive by taking not just what he needs but what he wants. Like the character says, "I was 15. Come on, what would you have done?" But David's luxurious and selfish lifestyle can only last so long before karma happens and all hell breaks loose with David being forced to turn his attention to things other than himself.

Movie goers jumped ahead of the critics and decided for themselves about Jumper and went out and saw the movie. In answer to the critics: "Jumper" isn't a big brain teaser. It's not hard to understand. Most of the complained about "unanswered questions" in the story are there in the movie if you're paying even a little attention. The movie did hold some things back and in that respect it was a lot like director Doug Liman's "The Bourne Identity" and its sequels. Jumper's ending and John Powell's totally cool music score especially at the end of the movie gave the feeling of more to come.

Though "Jumper" isn't perfect, there's something intriguing about the story and characters and together with some cool action sequences makes it an entertaining and fun popcorn flick. A sequel is already being talked about as a possibility. It deserves a sequel and if there is one, I'm there.

Over the coming days expect to see fan reviews and comments for Jumper posted here with probably a good dose of jumping the critics. Go out and make up your own mind about Jumper and see the movie this weekend.

Hayden Christensen's Jumper Number 1 Movie - Original Score by John Powell

Jumper Soundtrack Release - The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by John Powell is out in stores as of February 19th. Jumper, with a cast that includes Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson, Rachel Bilson and Jamie Bell, is the number 1 movie in the country, currently in theaters everywhere. I saw Jumper last week and loved the movie and the music for the film. Sounds like a cool movie score too. The soundtrack is also available on iTunes

Jumper, starring Hayden Christensen in the title role, is the story of a young man who finds he has the ability to teleport himself (jump) at will to anyplace he's been or seen before. He's no hero and with great power comes great opportunity so he takes the easy road, living in luxury and taking what he wants with no thought of the consequences until reality throws his perfect little world into a tailspin. Jumper is in theater's now.

Hayden Christensen and Doug Liman MIT Jumper Preview

Hayden and Doug Liman answered questions and took pictures with fans and talked about Jumper and the science behind the story at the special screening held at MIT last night. They were joined on the panel by two of the university's physics professors who answerd the more scientific and technical questions about teleportation. During the Q & A, Hayden asked the crowd not to think of him as only a "sci fi kinda guy" adding that he has two films coming out that have nothing to do with science fiction, saying "it will be a nice change". Where would Hayden teleport? "Home, it’s always good to be home.”

Jumper: Jumpscars Graphic Novel Diane Lane

I'm looking forward to filling in some back story for Jumper with the graphic novel that is coming out in February to coincide with the movie release. The graphic novels will be more about Mary Rice than Hayden's character David Rice. Mary's role in the movie is also going to be somewhat different from the book and expanded if my info is correct. How could you not have Diane Lane in Jumper and not expand her character's storyline. There are a few clues about Diane Lane's character on the new website and in the graphic novel previews on Oni Press if you want spoilers.

Check out the Jumpscars preview at Oni Press:

Hayden Christensen and Doug Liman at MIT Jumper Screening

Jumper's Hayden Christensen and Doug Liman will both be in attendance at a screening of selected scenes from the movie and a panel discussion with MIT Physics Professors Max Tegmark and Edward Farhi on the MIT campus Wednesday, January 16, 2008. You can get more info on the event on the Arts@MIT webpage.

Jumper, a 20th Century Fox February movie release, is the story of a young man with a genetic anomaly who finds he can teleport anywhere in the world in a split second. Trouble comes when he finds he isn't the only 'Jumper' out there and a secret organization isn't as excited about his talent as he is. In fact, they want to kill him because of the dangers Jumpers pose in being able to break laws at will and also a little something to do with creating rifts in the space-time continuum.

But if you think Jumper is just an action movie just read the synopsis:

"David is a Jumper who can teleport himself to the streets of New York and Tokyo, the ruins of Rome, and the Sahara Desert. He can see twenty sunsets in one night, whisk his girlfriend around the world in the blink of an eye, and grab millions of dollars in a matter of minutes. But David's global odyssey takes a deadly turn when he finds himself relentlessly pursued by a secret organization sworn to kill Jumpers. Forming an uneasy alliance with another Jumper, David becomes a key player in a war that seems to have no end. As these world-changing events unfold, David begins to discover the secrets and mythology behind his incredible ability."

I find jumping around the world to all those beautiful cities and taking time for sunsets and whisking your girlfriend around the globe just as romantic as I find it action-packed. And when Jumper whisks into theaters on Valentine's Day 2008, I'll have my head in the clouds thinking of romance and still be ready for an exciting ride.

Hayden Christensen cast in Neuromancer

The production company for Neuromancer the movie, Seven Arts Pictures, lists Hayden Christensen in the cast on the information page in their upcoming movies section. Also listed is Joseph Kahn as director and William Gibson as writer. Source: Seven Arts Pictures

Chatter in the cyberworld spread quickly this week when announced that his sources had named Hayden to take the lead role as Case in Neuromancer the movie. I don't know who Joblo's sources were but there was a project listing dated January 6th on which also listed Hayden in the cast. I suspect's info came from Seven Arts Pictures.

Neuromancer, first published in 1984 by William Gibson, was the original cyberpunk story with attitude that sparked our imagination and our views of a future world living with technology. Neuromancer's influence can be seen in such movies as Blade Runner and The Matrix. Whether you're in favor or not of the book as a movie and the choices of of cast and crew, this has been a hot topic this week for those who hope any movie adaptation can stay true to the book or completely skip a botched remix and not go to the big screen at all. Many agree though, a good adaptation has the potential to be an awesome film.
