Hayden Christensen Starring in Genesis Code with Brad Anderson Directing

Hayden Christensen and Brad Anderson may be working together again soon. Brad Anderson is attached to direct the upcoming movie The Genesis Code. According to IMDb Anderson would be replacing David R. Ellis as director on the film starring Christensen and based on the 1997 book of the same name by John Case. Hayden recently worked with Anderson on Vanising on 7th Street which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Christensen plays a former national security expert 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.

Anderson had a couple of films lined up to go into production soon so it's not known where Genesis Code would fit on his list of upcoming projects.

Spanish actress Paz Vega had been rumored in the cast with filming to take place in Spain possibly in 2011. Myriad Pictures' Kirk D’Amico and Forest Park Pictures' Tove Christensen will produce along with Michael Mailer and Alvaro Longoria.
