Samuel L. Jackson is attached to play the president of the United States in the action/adventure film “Big Game” for Altitude Film Entertainment and Subzero Film Entertainment.
The story follows a shy 13-year old boy who undergoes a test of manhood by spending a day and night alone in the wilderness.
On the same night, Air Force One is shot down by terrorists and the boy discovers the president in an escape pod in the forest where the pair team up in a struggle for survival.
Jalmari Helander (“Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale”) makes his English-language helming debut with the film which Will Clarke, Andy Mayson and Jens Meurer will produce. Shooting begins late Summer.
