Hayden Christensen Deciphers Genesis Code

Hayden Christensen Deciphers Genesis Code

Hayden Christensen has signed on for the lead role in director David R. Ellis’ upcoming thriller The Genesis Code, based on the novel of the same name written by John Case.

The story follows a former national security expert, played by Hayden, who, while investigating the murder of his only sister and her young son, discovers that a religious sect called The Shadow of the Cross may be involved. With the help of his sister’s friend Ana, they follow the clues to a clinic in the mountains of Italy, where a terrifying secret experiment has been conducted – successfully. The results are so threatening to the foundation of the Church that they will do anything to keep it from being revealed.

FYI: Hayden‘s older brother Tove Christensen is one of the producers!

On Monday, Hayden and fiancee Rachel Bilson hit the red carpet at the MET Ball.

    Sounds like a poor version of the Davinci code meets National Treasure.

    I wonder if there’s a part for Rachel in this…maybe she can play Ana. This is really the only way she can get a job!

    @lexy hates bilson:

    you’re just as bad as jared when it comes to dragging bilson’s name into something that doesn’t involve her. save the hater comments for a bilson post, would you? i’m sure there will be one up in the next 24 hours.

    Please we hear too much bout that woman she can’t act so why would they want her in this movie. I so hope they find another real actress for this movie. Someone he actually looks good with or has at least chemistry with.

    “a former security expert”? he has a “son”?
    Hayden is a kid, doesn’t even have 30 years of age, and he is playing a professional who has a son?
    Talk about ridiculous casting.
    There are enough actors in the age group of 30-45 who could have been cast in this role. Why go for such a young guy?

    This was a very fun book to read. I’ll definitely check out the movie.

    mimi-his character does not have a son-his sister did, and it’s possible to be an expert in your field at 30.

    @Rumors-The Genesis Code was published way before the Da Vinci Code so if anything Vinci “borrowed” elements from the first.

    @sucksu-you cared enough to post so it matters to you.

    Oh Please...... Says:

    One can hope Hayden is making somehow a come back and does this film and it is a hit. Then, he can ditch Bitrol twit that only cares about getting papped, shopping and wearing vintage Haute Coulture that usually is ill fitting on her petite body. She basically cannot get a real job and clings on to Hayden for her media gain. She is a walking parasite.

    I hope Hayden will wake up and find a real woman soon. Someone smart, gifted, talented and a bit quirky like Ellen Paige I can see. Somehow I believe Hayden again will be another disapointment! :-(

    give it a rest! Says:

    It’s been three years since Hayden and Rachel have been dating, and 1 1/2 years since they got engaged. Isn’t it time everyone grew up and got over the fact that they are engaged? It’s ridiculous to keep moaning and groaning about it, whatever happens will happen with them down the road.

    Sounds like an interesting movie, I hope it is a success for him! It will be nice to seeTakers in August.

    lexy hates bilson Says:

    His brother has no experience and we know was only given the job b/c of Hayden and his “production” company (which probably means HC will get a producer credit too). It’s not hard tobelieve that he’d give Rachel a job. Again, she needs all the help she can get. Though who knows if she’ll have time with her busy schedule as ambassador to Sunglass Hut.

    @lexy Says:

    Geez your hate is boiling over isn’t it, give your hate and the rest of us a break and go find a Rachel thread to annoy.
    BTW seeing as you dislike Hayden how do you know anything about his brother.

    BTW both production company and producers are normally listed in credits-Hayden is normally listed as just starring regardless if it’s part his company or not–check the poster for Vanishing, Tove and FFP are at the end credit, not Hayden as any form of producer, he shares acting credits.

    Oh brother… another movie that would surely ruined by this talentless hack. Isn’t it that what he’s doing in his movies “religiously”?!

    jeezzum Says:

    I seriously think that the casting director needed some props &/or inspiration about a tree or something that is made of plank of wood. The name HC initially comes first into his mind.

    lexy hates bilson Says:

    BTW, because I can read – that’s how I know about his brother and because I actually have a brain – that’s how I know about movie production. You can’t go by movie posters – they list the REAL producers (who cough up the cash) – wait until the actual movie comes out and watch the credits. Nothing wrong with HC taking a “producer” credit – plenty of actors do it.
    What’s the big deal about casting Rachel in this movie?? I’m sure she has the time in between her shopping sprees!! She could certainly use the acting credit on her resume!

    callmewhatever Says:

    He looks so damn adorable in that pic! Ms. Bilson is a very LUCKY woman. Alot of people think he’s not a good actor but I say it depends on the role. Life is a house he was great in and also shattered glass…..he was excellent in that. I think Channing Tatum on the other hand is a horrible actor, that is pure eyecandy and he’s not getting better at it.

    Lexy “You can’t go by movie posters – they list the REAL producers (who cough up the cash) – wait until the actual movie comes out and watch the credits”

    Then I guess Tove Christensen is a real producer, his name is listed on 3 posters that I am aware of and in the end credits off the 2 movies released thus far and I assume Vanishing end credits will be the same.

    As for Rachel, as others have suggested go find a Rachel thread there must be one on this board somewhere and so far she has not been mentioned in the cast, so all you are doing is stirring things up on a thread that has nothing to do with her.

    the truth Says:

    you know they are not going to hire rachel for this movie.She wasn’t in the last one that they made.And she is going to get mad if they don’t hired her in itr like last time.And why do you all put them down all the time? At least he help his family like always.That’s how hayden do it. She can’t star in a movie that he supposed to be her boyfriend.I’m sure that she won’t like the person that the people hired to play with him. She will start another rumor like last year. That they are breaking-up again. And since there won’t be no wedding plans she hoping that he cast her .And jared please stop talking about when they was in new york at the been days now and we have seem her out and about in la and beverly hills. Need that alone alone and hayden probably home. You just want people to stay interest in her cause you don’t want to say that they are not getting married and they might be breaking -up. They are not getting married jared mention that for change. its over move on.
