Every once and awhile, a big star will do a project completely random or under the radar. In the same year that This Is The End and Oz: The Great and Powerful came out, James Franco wrote, directed, and starred in his version of William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying.
Now we can add Samuel L. Jackson to the list of A-listers branching out. Jackson stars in a Finnish film being released later this year called Big Game. Directed by Jalmari Helander, Big Game is about a young boy who helps protects the President of the United States (Jackson) after terrorists shoot down Air Force One near the kid’s camp site. Check out the trailer above.
The film also stars Jim Broadbent and Victor Garbor, two faces Americans might recognize as well. The film currently has no U.S. release date, but will be released in Finland on March 25, 2015.
