Armie Hammer is one of the many young actors who is currently finding their star rising in Hollywood. Risky Biz is telling us that the young thesp has joined a new psychological thriller called 2:22. This news comes shortly after the announcement of his involvement in two high profile films, The Lone Ranger and The Brothers Grimm: Snow White. 2:22 will be looking for buyers at Cannes and will be coming to us from director Paul Currie.
The plot tells the story of the following:
“An air traffic controller named Dylan who is given a jolt when he narrowly avoids causing a mid air collision between two passenger planes. Caused by a mysterious blinding light that happened at 2:22 in the morning, 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”
It all sounds a bit corny to me but Hammer is a strong actor, at least going on what we saw in The Social Network. To be honest, I’m not sure why he’s taking projects like this when he’s already lined up for a couple high profile gigs but who knows, maybe this could turn out alright. Guess we’ll have to wait to see who else signs on. We’ll keep you posted.
