Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Kruger, and Emile Hirsch have signed on to star in 1940s drama Midnight Sun.  Written and directed by Chris Eigeman (Turn the River; he also starred in Whit Stillman‘s Metropolitan and The Last Days of Disco), the film “follows two young post graduates recruited by the US Government to work on a top-secret project in New Mexico. Along with one of the students’ new wife, they drop their jazz-filled lives in New York and move to a secret community of scientists in the desert.”  As everyone knows, desert scientists hate jazz.

According to Screen Daily, shooting is set to begin this summer.  Hit the jump for a refresher on the stars’ other projects.

Eisenberg will next be seen in the magician-thriller Now You See Me.  He’s also starring Richard Ayoade‘s The Double and will co-star with Dakota Fanning in the indie flick Night Moves.

Kruger will be seen in theaters this March in the adaptation of Stephanie Meyer‘s sci-fi thriller, The Host.  She’s also co-starring opposite Anton Yelchin in the romance movie 5 to 7, and she’s set to lead the Abraham Lincoln film The Green Blade Rises, which is being produced by Terrence Malick.

Finally, Hirsch recently starred in the David Gordon Green dramedy Prince Avalanche.  He’s also co-starring in Peter Berg‘s adaptation of Lone Survivor.
