Hottie Hayden Christensen has inked a deal to star in "Beast of Bataan." The film is about the “true story of the trial of the Japanese general who was executed for his role in the 1942 Bataan Death March, during which thousands of American and Filipino POWs died on a forced march to captivity.”
Christensen will play the amateur lawyer who will defend general Masaharu Homma during his war crimes trial. Koji Yakusho who was in the film 'Babel' is in talks to play general Homma.
The film will start production some time in February in Australia.
