Lightstream Pictures today announced the psychological thriller 2:22, which will be directed by Lightstream co-founder Paul Currie (One Perfect Day) and based on an original concept by highly sought-after screenwriter Todd Stein (Unbound) and Nathan Parker (Moon). The film will star Armie Hammer, who is coming off the award-winning acclaimed film The Social Network and just wrapped Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar opposite Leonardo DiCaprio.
2:22 is being billed as a clever, rollercoaster thriller that centers on Dylan (Hammer), an air traffic controller who is given a jolt when he narrowly escapes being responsible for a mid air collision between two passenger planes. Caused by a mysterious blinding light that happened at 2:22, these strange occurrences continue and lead Dylan to meet Sarah, with whom he feels inexplicably linked. Together the two discover uncanny similarities with their current predicament and a double murder committed a generation ago. With a grim fate looming, Dylan must solve the mystery of 2:22 to preserve a love whose second chance has finally come.
The film will begin principal photography in Sydney in the fall.
