Hayden Christensen is set to star in the indie spy thriller "Inner Circle" in a co-production between Christensen's newly minted Glacier Films, Original Entertainment and Hartland Entertainment.
Original Entertainment heads Daljit DJ Parmar and Hunt Lowry will produce with Christensen and his brother Tove Christensen and Hartman. Luke Daniels is exec producing.
Mohit Ramchandani will make his feature directing debut, helming from a Leonard Hartman script. Christensen will portray a CIA analyst, who while looking for answers about the disappearance of his father, a Cold War spy, is sucked into a web of murder and intrigue by a secretive organization inside the government.
Project was announced at Cannes on Monday, four days after the Christensens unveiled the launch of Glacier Films with an 11-picture slate scheduled over the next three years. The slate consists of six films with budgets in the $10 million range, plus five microbudget titles ranging around $1.5 million each.
Original Entertainment had announced May 15 that it had closed a five-picture deal with Millennium Films for Bollywood remakes of "Rambo," "The Expendables," "16 Blocks," "88 Minutes" and "Brooklyn's Finest."
Hayden Christensen is repped by Bill Choi and Chris Huvane at Management 360.
