Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba, none of them are sleepy or even fallen asleep. They are all "Awake." Joined by Lena Olin, Terrence Howard and Sam Robards, all of them keep their eyes open, none other for the sake of the highly anticipated thriller "Awake."
The story of the film follows Christensen's role, who becomes the victim of "anesthetic awareness," in which a patient remains awake but paralyzed during surgery. Olin and Robards play Christensen's parents, and Alba plays his wife, who's facing her own demons. Elsewhere, Howard plays the heart surgeon who leads the operation.
As GreeneStreet Films and the Weinstein Co. have agreed to finance writer Joby Harold's directorial debut, the film production will be begun October 31 in New York.
