Troika Pictures announced that the thriller The Hive should be directed by Joel Schumacher (The Number 23, The Phantom of the Opera, Batman & Robin, Batman Forever). Now it seems as if Schumacher has exited, having been replaced by Brad Anderson (Vanishing on 7th Street, The Machinist). The film, which sets up in an emergency call center, follows a 911 operator who must overcome her past if she hopes to prevent a serial killer from claiming another victim. Originally reported to have Halle Berry attached (who dropped out due to scheduling issues), several top actresses have expressed interest. In a script by Rich D'Ovidio (Exit Wounds), The Hive is scheduled to begin production in late spring.
Anderson is ecstatic about his involvement with the picture: "I'm extremely excited about working with Troika on The Hive. This script has two elements I always look for in a thriller - strong, believable female characters and a smart, very dark and very creepy story that will definitely resonate with large audiences."
