Starring: Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson, Diane Lane, Rachel Bilson,
Jamie Bell, Max Thieriot, Shawn Roberts, AnnaSophia Robb Director: Doug Liman
U.S. Opening Date: February 15th, 2008
A teenager from an abusive household (Christensen)
discovers he can teleport from one place to another. He uses this ability
to search for the man he believes is responsible for the death of his
mother, drawing the attention of the NSA, and another kid with the same
power. Based on the Steven Gould novel.
Scripted by Blade scribe David Goyer, Jumper
may star the wooden Christensen (Young Darth Vader from the
prequels), but it’s also got bad ass Samuel L. Jackson – so it can’t be
all bad, right?
Anyway, Jumper promises to be a sci-fi Jason Bourne-style actioner (Liman directed the first
Bourne Identity movie).
