Christensen faces torture

Hayden to play a kidnapped cop in Poker Night

Okay, picture this: there’s a rookie cop, played by Darth Vader himself, Hayden Christensen. He gets snatched from the street and imprisoned by a maniac who tortures him in a filthy basement. Sounds like Saw III? We thought the same thing.

It’s actually the serial-killer thriller Poker Night, which will feature another Star Wars veteran, Samuel L Jackson. Signed up for directing duties is Nick Gillard, who knows both of his stars well – he taught them how to fight as stunt coordinator on Episodes I-III. We doubt there’ll be any lightsaber smackdowns in Poker Night, but you never know…
