With Samuel L. Jackson...
Screen Daily reports that Felicity Huffman, Victor Garber and Ted Levine have joined the cast of Jalmari Helander's (Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale) new movie Big Game. The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Onni Tommila, Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson and Mehmet Kurtulus. It has already shot for eight weeks on location in Bavaria and at Bavaria Film Studios.
Jackson plays the US president, whose plane is shot down. He is stranded in the wilderness with only a thirteen-year-old boy to help him get away from terrorists.
The film is a Finnish-German-UK co-production. Petri Jokiranta produces for Subzero, along with Will Clarke and Andy Mayson for Altitude Film Entertainment and Jens Meurer of Egoli Tossell Film. Alex Garland is the executive producer.
Helander, who co-wrote the script, said: "Big Game is an action adventure story on an epic scale. I'm delighted to be taking this genre on as it has always been very close to my heart, as action-packed adventure stories contain the elements that I believe make movies that are worth watching."
