If I were to run into Hayden Christensen today
I would quickly shake his hand. Even though his portrayal of Anakin in Attack
of the Clones was a little rough on the edges, he easily made it up
with his fall to Vader in Revenge
of the Sith. But never mind all that, the guy now gets
to work side by side with Jessica Alba in the upcoming film Awake.
Alba and Christensen are Awake
According to Variety, reposted at MovieHole,
Jessica Alba has
recently dropped the option to play the role of Jeannie in the film adaptation
of I Dream of Jeannie. Though I will miss the opportunity to glance
at Alba in the type of outfits I would expect here to wear in Jeannie,
her role in Awake sounds much more interesting. Teaming up with
Hayden 'Vader' Christensen in the upcoming psychological thriller, which
will supposedly do to surgery what Jaws did to sharks... or what
Psycho did to showers?
Awake tells the story of a man [Christensen] who suffers from "anesthetic
awareness" and therefore comes to right in the middle of surgery. Though
I'd probably blame the anesthesiologist before making a thriller of a story
out it, there you go. Jessica Alba will play the man's wife and a character
that will obviously have her own issues.
