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.
