Hayden Christensen has joined the cast of the David R. Ellis-directed thriller "The Genesis Code" for Myriad Pictures.
Based on John Case's novel, Christensen plays former national security expert Joe Lassiter who is investigating the murder of his only sister and her young son and learns that a religious sect may be involved.
With the help of his sister's friend, the trail leads to an Italian mountain clinic where a terrifying secret experiment has revealed something so threatening to the foundation of the Church - one they'll do anything to keep secret.
Kevin Bernhardt adapted the script. Tove Christensen, Kirk D'Amico, Michael Mailer and Alvaro Longoria will produce.
