About The Hummingbird Project 💬

Want to make money fast? Here's how.

  • With the stakes this high, every millisecond counts.

In this tale of humanity versus corporate greed, Zaleski cousins from New York, Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of High-Frequency Trading (HFT), where winning is measured in milliseconds.

  • They're about to put everything on the line.

Their dream? To build a straight fiber-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions.

  • When millions are on the line, betrayal happens at the speed of light.

But nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to the breaking point with their quixotic adventure. Constantly breathing down their necks is their old boss Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a powerful, intoxicating and manipulative trader who will stop at nothing to come between them and beat them at their own game.

  • We're all driven, until we are pushed over the Line.

No matter what the cost, Vincent and Anton are determined to cut through America, only to find redemption at the end of their line, not through money, but through family and reconnecting to the land.


Many years ago, I was struck with this amazing premise of people digging thousand-mile long tunnels to try and shave a couple of milliseconds off of the time it took to make their stock market trades. Madness.

It immediately made sense to explore if there was a movie to be made around that high concept... I had this haunting image in my head of stock market hustlers struggling to walk through swamps and muddy forests in their expensive suits, putting their sanity on the line all for the good old dollar. Little did I know how complex bringing this to the screen would be. We talked with experts of every scientific expertise you could imagine: quantum physics experts, fiber optic physicists, highly specialized tunnel-digging experts who dig hundred-mile-long, four-inch-wide tunnels for a living. High-frequency trading experts dealing with billion-dollar money flows on a daily basis... Boy, what a ride.

And then, well... we had to go through swamps, forests, cities, mud, rivers, we had to bring 20-ton digging machines in the middle of nowhere. In a way, our journey was as quixotic as the premise in the film. And what a ride it was...

In retrospect, there is something about bringing forward what seems to be a metaphoric world, when in fact most of what is in the script is, in some way, true to life.
