The Canadian actor is joining forces with Nicolas Cage, with both "attached" for stuntman Nick Powell's directorial debut, reported The Wrap.
The 31-year-old is tipped to play a warrior who tries to redeem himself by saving a princess, but it is not known what role Nicolas will take.
Production is expected to start next year.
Hayden, who played the young Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith, has been quiet since appearing in 2008's sci-fi adventure Jumper and 2009 ensemble drama New York, I Love You.
Nicolas, who reprised his role as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider in the sequel Spirit Of Vengeance, is attached to David Gordon Green's drama Joe, vigilante thriller I Am Wrath and drama Amicus.
