911 Call Center / Abigail Breslin

In the ten years she's been acting, starting with her pivotal role in M. Night Shyamalan's Signs, Abigail Breslin has left a good impression on the film world. The actress gained critical acclaim for her work in Little Miss Sunshine, and has gained fanboy appeal as well with her role in Zombieland. The rising star plans to keep working with A-list talent, as The Playlist reports she's just been cast opposite Halle Berry in the upcoming thriller The Hive for director Brad Anderson. Breslin will play a teenage girl who gets involved with a deranged killer, and Berry's 911 operator character must come to her rescue. More below!

It sounds like The Hive could be a good change of pace for Breslin, who has recently been dabbling on the more comedic end of the filmmaking spectrum with voice work in Rango and co-starring with Berry as part of the rom-com ensemble in New Year's Eve. She's also got the sci-fi adaptation Ender's Game on the way, which just started a production blog yesterday, so it looks like she's following the natural progression of most child stars, who attempt to distance themselves from the cutesy stuff they did growing up by taking on more challenging material. Breslin's got loads of potential and a lot of charm; those traits alone will take her a long way in this business, not to mention she's got talent to boot. Filming on The Hive begins in June in Los Angeles, with a 2013 release date expected.
