Eisenberg, Skarsgard Join “Hummingbird”

Jesse Eisenberg and Alexander Skarsgard are starring in Kim Nguyen’s tech drama “The Hummingbird Project” which begins shooting in Montreal in October.

Eisenberg and Skarsgard will portray players of high-frequency trading, where winning is measured in nanoseconds. Their dream is to build a fibre-optic cable straight between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions.

They are opposed by their old boss, a psychopathic trader who will stop at nothing to see them fail.

Nguyen (“The War Witch”) will direct from his own script. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger will executive produce.
