Zombieland star moves into The Hive

Remember Abigail Breslin, the cute little girl who received an Oscar nomination for her work in the indie comedy Little Miss Sunshine before she battled zombies in the modern classic that is Zombieland? No? Then you are a true Basement Dweller.

Well, Breslin is moving further into the horror genre with her next project, The Hive, where she joins Oscar winner and Bond girl Halle Berry. Yes, we posted a picture of Berry instead of Breslin because we don't want to seem like a couple of pedophiles. Pervs yes, pedophiles no.

The Hive is directed by genre veteran Brad Anderson, who helmed Session 9, The Machinist and Vanishing on 7th Street. Berry plays an operator at a 911 call centre who must race against time to save a teenage girl menaced by a deranged killer. Logically, Breslin plays the teenager. But wouldn't it be really interesting if she played the killer? Indeed.

I like Anderson's work. So far his only real misfire has been Vanishing. The Hive's story does sound a bit pedestrian, but so did the premise for John Carpenter's Halloween. The film's success or failure will rest on the shoulders of its director. No pressure, Brad.

The Hive shoots this summer.
