What box-office draw is getting their star turn as President of the United States?
The one-and-only Samuel L. Jackson as POTUS, according to industry reports from Cannes. Jackson takes the lead in Big Game, Jalmari Helander’s English-language directorial debut.Reportedly, the film tells of a shy, 13-year-old boy who’s destined to mature quickly after finding the U.S. President in an escape pod. As terrorists close in, Oskari and the president must team up to survive.
We have read that Big Game is being described as an “adrenaline-fuelled action adventure that takes the universal rite-of-passage theme of iconic 80s films, such as ‘E.T.’ and ‘The Karate Kid,’ and brilliantly combines this with the visceral thrill of high-concept action classics such as ‘Die Hard’ and ‘Taken.’”Production on the film starts in Finland and Germany this summer.
