Hayden Christensen For Jumper

According to THR, Regency has picked up Hayden Christensen to star in the Doug Liman thriller Jumper.

Since we mentioned 'big-budget' are you wondering how big the budget actually is? Well, to help fund the film Regency has partnered with Fox on this one to cover the estimated, here it comes, $100 million. For a thriller?!

The film was supposed to begin shooting earlier this summer but it has been waiting for someone to star. Now, with Hayden on board, production will begin immediately.

Tom Sturridge was originally sought to play the lead role of David, which now will be played by Christensen, since a decision was made to go with a more prominent actor.

Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Bell and Teresa Palmer remain with the production.

The movie, which Regency and Fox hope to turn into a trilogy, will now shoot at month's end in Toronto, Rome and Tokyo.

Stay tuned for updates.
