Samuel L. Jackson Taking A Break From Shooting Political Ads To Star In ‘Reasonable Doubt’

Samuel L. Jackson Taking A Break From Shooting Political Ads To Star In 'Reasonable Doubt'

One of the hardest working men in showbiz, Samuel L. Jackson, has signed up to star in the indie drama Reasonable Doubt, alongside Dominic Cooper.

Written by Peter Dowling and to be directed by Peter Howitt, the film centers on an up-and-coming assistant D.A. prosecuting a fatal hit-and-run case with inconclusive evidence. Following the trial, the assistant D.A finds himself struggling to hunt the man he got acquitted. 

No word on what actor will play what role, but I’ll take a guess and say that Cooper will play the up-and-coming assistant D.A., while Jackson will play theman he got acquitted. 

The film, a co-production between Paradox Entertainment, South Creek Pictures, and Bavariapoolis scheduled to start shooting in Canada next month. 

The project was previously titled The Good Samaritan, and may have gotten the name change because Samuel L. Jackson starred in a recent film called The Samaritan, which was released on home video just last month. 

When he’s bot busy making “Wake The F&#@ Up” ads for Barack Obama, Jackson can be seen shooting upcoming films like Robocop, and Oldboy.
