Samuel L. Jackson Indie Thriller ‘Reasonable Doubt’ Picked Up By Lionsgate For 2013 Release

Samuel L. Jackson Indie Thriller 'Reasonable Doubt' Picked Up By Lionsgate For 2013 Release

One of the hardest working men in showbiz, Samuel L. Jackson’s indie drama Reasonable Doubt, which he stars in alongside Dominic Cooper and Gloria Reuben, has been picked up by Lionsgate (US rights), and will be sold internationally by Voltage Pictures.

The $8 million German-Canadian co-production, shot over 27 days in November and December in Winnipeg and Chicago, was written by Peter Dowling, and directed by Peter Howitt, and 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. 

The film, a co-production between Paradox Entertainment, South Creek Pictures, and Bavariapool, 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 2 months ago. 

Lionsgate plans a 2013 release for the film, although no exact date given. Add this to Jackson’s already busy slate of 2013 films, like Robocop, and Oldboy, to name a couple. We’ll be seeing a lot of him on screen this year.
