Hayden Christensen has officially signed to star in writer/director Brad Anderson’s upcoming thriller  Vanishing on Seventh Street according the THR. Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo are also currently in negotiations to join the project.

The biggest thrill about this film is that it’s not based on anything nor is it a remake! GASP! People can still do that?

The film was written by Anderson and Anthony Jaswinski and is about “a once-thriving city where shadowy forms cause residents to inexplicably disappear. Five survivors fight to stay alive while grappling with the meaning of existence.”

Edgar Ribon is another person who has been rumored to possibly be joining the cast, so he might be the 4th member to add to our five survivors. We’ll let you know once we have the final five are.

We do know that Christensen is set to play a reporter and if signed on, Newton will play a desperate nurse and Leguizamo a subway operator.

Shooting is set to begin mid-October in the once-thriving city of Detroit.
