Hayden Christensen has a movie father, daughter day on 90 Minutes in Heaven set.

Hayden plays the role of minister, husband and father of 3 in his latest movie 90 Minutes in Heaven. Don Piper was 38 when he was involved in a fatal car crash on a bridge in Houston, Texas. Playing a few years older than his actual years, Hayden is pictured below on the set with Elizabeth Hunter who plays his young daughter Nicole Piper. The picture of the two of them together makes it easy to imagine Hayden as a dad.

90 Minutes in Heaven on Facebook posted a set photo of Hayden and Kate Bosworth in a hospital scene. Catherine Carlen who plays Don's mother-in-law posted a selfie with Hayden on Twitter. 1989 looks good on Hayden.


Hayden Christensen covered in light on the set of 90 Minutes in Heaven.

Hayden was photographed on the set today with director Michael Polish preparing for a scene in the upcoming movie 90 Minutes in Heaven. Today's filming also included a demo of special effects lighting from Briteshot which might explain the bright light in the picture, giving it an ethereal glow.

Set visits were also scheduled this week and Michael W. Smith and Jason Kennedy returned to film additional scenes. Jason Kennedy posted a brief video of a light snow falling in Atlanta but that didn't stop filming. ? Sorry Jason, no snow day today. ?? It's been reported that 90 Minutes in Heaven will be released in the fall of 2015. ?? ??


Hayden Christensen on the set of 90 Minutes in Heaven.

Thanks to actor Deena Beasley for posting a few pictures of Hayden from the set of 90 Minutes in Heaven. The hospital scene below shows Hayden in a hosptal bed with a medical device called the Ilizarov apparatus that was used to grow about 4 inches of missing bone from Don Piper's leg during his 13 month long recovery. The process is slow and very painful but is part of the powerful story of how Don Piper came through an extremely trying time in his life.

Hayden Christensen's next project "Untot" secrets revealed.

Hayden Christensen set for next project

Hayden has signed on to star in the horror thriller "Untot" from producer Greg O'Connor of Solaris Entertainment (Warrior) and 13 Films and will be directed by Kris Renkewitz. Hayden plays Lt. Frederick Hank, the leader of a highly trained military unit, dropped behind enemy lines in Nazi occupied Poland to destroy a weapons facility. There they find something even special training never prepared them for. The World War II film has begun casting and will begin filming in New York, March 2015. Tannaz Anisi of 13 Films plans to introduce "Untot" to buyers this week at the European Film Market in Berlin. Source: THR Press Release

The movie "Untot" (the word means "undead") is based on true events with an added horror element. Towards the end of World War II, an elite trained military group made up of US and Canadian Special Forces was sent into Europe to extract German scientist working on top secret weapons in what was called Operation Paperclip which is an intriguing true story on it's own.

Throughout the years, there have also been many myths and legends about the supposed obsession of The 3rd Reich with the occult, aliens and the supernatural. So there are plenty of interesting resources here to contribute to a horror genre film.

"Untot" will be directed by first time film director Kris Renkewitz from a script he wrote. He is also a veteran video game director with his own VFX production studio and video game credits such as Tomb Raider, Prince of Persia and Resident Evil. His comic book credits include Marvel Comics - The West Coast Avengers, Iron Man/War Machine and Daredevil, as well as for DC Comics - The Flash, The Justice League and Superboy.

Movie Pitch / Story

Based on the true story of Operation Paperclip, a joint US/Canadian operation called the First Special Forces is created to train the toughest soldiers to go on high risk missions. Five of these hardened soldiers drop into Nazi occupied Poland on a mission they know they may never return from. Their assignment: to locate and blow up a Nazi medical laboratory known for its torturous experimentation on POW's. The soldiers trek through a winter storm to reach their target. They find the laboratory abandoned with vestiges of its horrific experiments. But there are a small group of prisoners left alive. The mission changes to leading the former prisoners through the storm to safety. But there is something out there trying to stop them....the undead. And it will test each soldier's greatest fears.

Nicolas Cage talks about working with Hayden Christensen in Outcast.

An Outcast promotional video with Nicolas Cage has been posted to IGN Videos Watch the video below. Nicolas was very complimentary of Hayden's work as an actor and looks forward to continuing their friendship.

Outcast starring Hayden Christensen, Nicolas Cage, Liu Yifei and Andy On will have a limited run in the US starting February 6. So far Fandango only shows listings for Los Angeles and New York which isn't unusual for a limited release movie but check your local theater this weekend.

90 Minutes in Heaven with Hayden Christensen and Kate Bosworth begins filming in Atlanta.

Hayden Christensen and Kate Bosworth kick-off party for 90 Minutes in Heaven in Atlanta

Eva Piper, wife of Pastor Don Piper, posted thoughts and prayers along with photos on her Facebook after the kick-off dinner for 90 Minutes in Heaven in Atlanta.  Kate and Hayden are pictured below along with director Michael Polish, Eva Piper and Don Piper from the special dinner that took place January 31.

Kate has already been pictured with an elegant new haircut for the movie and Hayden has been growing a mustache.  1989 (when the movie takes place) was a good year for a full mustache.  Hayden has also gone to the dark side with brunette locks to look more like his character.  A picture of Pastor Don Piper after his accident in 1989 is also below.
