Hayden Christensen Talks About Jumping Again
Hayden Christensen is talking about the possibility of doing a Jumper sequel. According to the 27-year old Canadian actor, they are currently talking about it with Liman looking to take the franchise in the same direction as his Jason Bourne series.
Hayden suggested he would do Jumper 2 and 3 if asked to. Liman originally planned a movie trilogy based on Steven Gould’s novel. “It was set up to become that (a trilogy) if it did well,” says Christensen. “And I think they’re happy with how it did so they want to make another one. But I don’t think they’re rushing to get into production.”
Jumper features Christensen as a slacker with the ability to teleport to anywhere on Planet Earth he can visualize. As he settles into a life of crime, idle sex and indolent self-satisfaction, he discovers there are other Jumpers, as well as religious fanatics called Paladins who are devoted to killing Jumpers as abominations. Suddenly, being an anti-hero Jumper is no longer the easy life.
JUMPER is out on DVD, June 16th.
