Production is skedded to start mid-April in Toronto.

Breslin, who’s currently filming Gavin Hood’s adaptation of “Ender’s Game” for Summit and Odd Lot Entertainment, will shoot “The Hive” in June for Troika Pictures. Thesp is also attached to star in Black Sheep Entertainment’s comedy “Virgin Mary.”

Breslin is repped by ICM and Untitled Entertainment.
