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.
