Believe it or not, but Oscar-nominee Abigail Breslin is nearly 16-years-old (yep, Little Miss Sunshine was nearly seven years ago now!). However she’s still one of the best young actresses around and she’s now boarded the thriller, The Hive, joining Halle Berry who signed up for Brad Anderson’s movie earlier this month.
The film is about an emergency call centre operator who is forced to confront a killer from her past in order to save a young girl’s life. Halle Berry is playing the 911 operator while Breslin will be the endangered girl. The project is based on an original idea by writers Richard D’Ovidio, Nicole D’Ovidio, and Jon Bokencamp.
Director Brad Anderson commented on the latest casting, “Abigail is always wonderful playing vulnerable characters so I feel really lucky to have her for this role.” (Source: Variety)
