An unlikely trio of stars are in talks to appear in Brad Anderson’s upcoming Vanishing on 7th Street, an indie thriller the director co-wrote with Anthony Jaswinski. Anderson, who for my money still hasn’t quite lived up to the promise he showed with Session 9, is following up the recent Transsiberian and a string of “Fringe” episodes with Vanishing.
Hayden Christensen (pictured) is confirmed with both Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo still in negotiations, according to THR. The film’s storyline is set in 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.
Christensen is playing a reporter. Newton would play a desperate nurse and Leguizamo a subway operator. Shooting is set to begin mid-October in the once-thriving city of Detroit. Producing are Celine Rattray of Plum Pictures, Tove Christensen via Forest Park, and Lawrence Mattis for Circle of Confusion.
Shadowy forms … people disappearing … this could be the one that puts Anderson over the top. Stay tuned for more on Vanishing on 7th Street as it comes.
