The actor has inked a two-picture deal with Emmett/Furla/Oasis.
Hayden Christensen will join Bruce Willis in First Kill, the Steven C. Miller-directed action thriller that Emmett/Furla/Oasis will produce, finance and release through its deal with Lionsgate Premiere.
Nick Gordon wrote the script, which centers on a police chief (Willis) who tries to solve a case that involves a bank robber holding a young boy hostage. Christensen will play the man whose son is taken hostage after he accidentally witness a thug shooting a bank thief while on a hunting trip. He's racing against a ticking clock to rescue his son, while at the same time the police chief begins to wonder whether or not he played a role in the bank heist.
