Emile Hirsch to Star in Sci-Fi Movie The Darkest Hour 2010-04-12 11:00:00

Emile Hirsch Gets Ready to Fight Off Aliens

Emile Hirsch has dealt with all sorts of characters in his films — hippies, skateboarders, porn stars — but in his latest project, he'll be taking on a whole new breed. The actor has signed on for the sci-fi thriller The Darkest Hour about a group of students in Russia after an alien invasion. It's being compared to the spooky hit 28 Days Later, which bodes well for the flick. Actress Olivia Thirlby has already joined the film as well.

While Hirsch isn't exactly the first guy who comes to mind when I picture someone kicking extraterrestrial butt, he is a good actor so it'll be fun to see him tackle something new. Do you agree?

While I do not care for most sci-fi alien films, I do like Emile and since I find him to be such a wonderful actor (conveyed such emotion, even when silent, in "Into The Wild) that I will probably watch the film on rent. That is saying quite a lot since I'm not kidding about my distaste for alien-based storylines.
