We’ve got our hands on a first official picture of The Hummingbird Project, the upcoming drama movie written and directed by Kim Nguyen:(Click on the picture to enlarge.)
“In this epic tale of humanity versus corporate greed, director of Academy Award nominated WAR WITCH, Kim Nguyen exposes the ruthless edge of our increasingly digital world.
Cousins from New York, Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of High Frequency Trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a fiber-optic cable in a straight line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions.
But nothing is straightforward for this awed pair. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to breaking point on their quixotic adventure. Breathing down their necks is their old boss Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a sociopathic trader who will stop at nothing to see them fail.
No matter what the cost, Vincent and Anton are determined to cut through America, only to find redemption at the end of their line, not through money, but through family and reconnecting to the land.”
Can’t wait too see Salma Hayek as a sexy sociopathic trader, lol!
The cast includes Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Salma Hayek, Michael Mando, Johan Heldenbergh, Ayisha Issa, Mark Slacke, Sarah Goldberg, Frank Schorpion, Kwasi Songui, Conrad Pla, Julian Bailey, Jessica Greco, Robert Reynolds, and Wyatt Bowen.
