Looks like O.G. actor Samuel L. Jackson may don a halo for his new film “The Samaritan.”
According to Variety, the “Pulp Fiction” star – who is also slated to appear in Marvel flicks “Nick Fury” and “The Avengers” – will play Foley, a former swindler and ex-con, seeking a new start.
Jackson will play opposite Luke Kirby and Ruth Negga in the neo-noir thriller and is expected to begin filming next week. Shoot spots include Toronto and Rio de Janeiro.
The actor is also currently shooting “Meeting Evil” with Luke Wilson and Leslie Bibb, about a young family man who crosses paths with a mysterious stranger, and he’s slated to star in “XXX: The Return of Xander Cage.”
