Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Kruger and Emile Hirsch are set to star in the 1943-set atomic bomb drama “Midnight Sun” at WestEnd Film and Captivate Entertainment.
The story follows two young post graduates recruited by the US Government to work on a top-secret project in New Mexico.
Along with the wife of one of the students, they drop their jazz-filled lives in New York and move to a secret community of scientists in the desert.
Chris Eigeman (“Turn the River”) has written the script and will direct. Ben Smith, Jeffrey Weiner and Eric Morris will produce with filming kicking off this summer.
