Samuel L. Jackson Is A “Samaritan”

Samuel L. Jackson, Luke Kirby and Ruth Negga are all set to star in neo-noir thriller “The Samaritan” for Anonymous Content reports Variety.

The story follows a former grifter (Jackson) who sets out to put his life of crime behind him after serving a twenty-year prison sentence.

He meets an elusive young woman (Negga), but it’s not long before the son (Kirby) of his former partner asks him for help with an ingenious plan.

David Weaver directs from a script he co-wrote with Elan Mastai (“Alone in the Dark”). Production is aiming to kick off next week in Toronto and Rio de Janeiro. Andras Hamori, Suzanne Cheriton and Tony Wosk will produce.
