The actress will star alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Alexander Skarsgård in Kim Nguyen's high-speed drama.

Salma Hayek is joining Jesse Eisenberg and Alexander Skarsgård in The Hummingbird Project, the next project from Kim Nguyen (War Witch, Two Lovers and a Bear).

Written by Nguyen, The Hummingbird Project will see Eisenberg and Skarsgård play cousins who inhabit the high-stakes world of high-frequency trading and hatch a multimillion-dollar plan that involves plenty of danger if they fail. Hayek will play their nemesis, their brilliant but ruthless former boss.

The film — which was first introduced to buyers in Cannes by HanWay Films, who reps international sales (CAA is overseeing the U.S.) — is being produced by Pierre Even (War Witch, C.R.A.Z.Y., Brooklyn) of Item 7 in Montreal and co-produced with Belgian Belga Films, with Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Loving) and Fred Berger (La La Land) of Automatik as executive producers.

Production is set to commence next month in Montreal.
