THR: Weston (Johnny Dies in the End) and Griffith (who plays young Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern movie) play brothers who team up to battle a creature in what is being described as a "suburban nightmare" tale. The filmmakers say "they are making a love letter to early Steven Spielberg
films," and are aiming for a tone of Spielberg-produced Poltergeist and Amblin productions from that time.
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.
