Motor City runs on empty

Posted by admin with 2 Comments

The producers of Magnet/Magnolia Pictures’ “Vanishing on 7th Street” found just the right city for their sci-fi pic.

“If you’re doing a post-apocalyptic theme, Detroit fits the bill,” helmer Brad Anderson said at Monday’s Cinema Society preem at the IFC Center. “Even if they didn’t have a 41% rebate, that town works for this movie thematically. It’s a place that really is suffering a vanishing of people and we didn’t have to do a lot to create that reality there.”

Hayden Christensen agreed: “There were so few people around, which worked well for our movie. Usually passersby come by and see you — and there was nobody.”

    Hayden is one awesome dude that’s for sure! The older he gets the more handsome he gets! Anyone know what his next film will be? Is it The Cold?
    I must admit I like his hair longer and curlier but maybe he’s just letting it grow until he knows how they want it for his next role. I just loved his hair in Shattered Glass but I like it more it’s natural blond than brown! God bless you Hayden!
