Samuel L. Jackson And Dominic Cooper Sign On For Reasonable Doubt
Peter Howitt, the director of films such as Antitrust, Sliding Doors and Johnny English, has found his two leads for his next film. Samuel L. Jackson and Dominic Cooper have both signed on the dotted line to star in the legal thriller Reasonable Doubt, originally known as The Good Samaritan.
Based on a script written by Peter Dowling (Flightplan) the movie follows an up-and-coming assistant D.A. who is working to convict in a hit and run case and then “struggling to hunt the man he got acquitted.” Variety, which first reported the casting, doesn’t say what role either actor will be playing. They are planning to start production on the movie before the end of the year, heading up to Canada on November 19th.
Funny that two people from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Howard Stark and Nick Fury) who never met each other should end up in the same film again, huh? As for what each actor has coming up next, Jackson will be seen later this year in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, lent his voice to the DreamWorks Animation film Turbo, and is currently in production on RoboCop. Cooper, who turned a lot of heads starring in the indie drama/thriller The Devil’s Double, has Christopher Menaul’s Summer in February going through post-production, and Niels Arden Oplev’s Dead Man Down coming to theaters in March of next year. He will also soon be playing Sacha Gervasi in the biopic My Dinner With Herve, which will also star Games of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage.
