Hayden Christensen Is 'The Madison Kid'

Hayden Christensen is set to play 'Poker Brat' Phil Hellmuth, in the poker biopic The Madison Kid, say Production Weekly.

The feature will follow the 24-year-old Hellmuth, who became the youngest World Champion of Poker by defeating the two-time defending champion, Johnny Chan, in the World Series of Poker main event.

Hellmuth attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for three years before dropping out to play poker full time much to the chagrin of his father, a professor at the school. Production is slated to begin in April or May in Winnipeg, Canada.
