At Precisely '2:22' Armie Hammer Joins a New Psychological Thriller
With his recent casting in high profile projects like The Lone Ranger and The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, the future is looking even brighter for The Social Network star Armie Hammer. Now a new project with the actor attached will be looking for buyers at the Cannes Film Festival later this month. Risky Biz reports Hammer is attached to star in 2:22, a psychological thriller from director Paul Currie, co-founder of Lightstream Pictures which is also behind the project. The story focuses on an air traffic controller named Dylan who is given a jolt when he narrowly avoids causing a mid air collision between two passenger planes.
Caused by a mysterious blinding light that happened at 2:22 in the morning, these strange occurrences continue and lead Dylan to meet Sarah, with whom he feels inexplicably linked. Together the two discover uncanny similarities with their current predicament and a double murder committed a generation ago. With a grim fate looming, Dylan must solve the mystery of 2:22 to preserve a love whose second chance has finally come. Sounds a little hokey, but with Hammer attached, maybe the Todd Stein and Nathan Parker scripted project can get picked up at Cannes. If all goes well, production will start this fall in Australia. After thoroughly enjoying Hammer's double duty performance in The Social Network, I'm looking forward to seeing how his career blossoms even more. What about you guys?
