Just as the post title says, I’ve got a couple of new pics for you from last week. Huge thanks to @elizabethquon and @OCCY85 on Twitter for their permissions to share them with you! xxx
The first (from Elizabeth) is a pic of Sam with her Mum. They met as Sam was on his way to Nola.
The second (from Occy) was taken when Sam visited @theAMChannel in Amsterdam recently.
Again, thank you both for the very kind permission to use your pics! x
Just a couple of (not brilliant quality, sorry) stills of Sam from the ‘Sabotage’ trailer released on Thursday. Hope we get some good pics soon.
Looking forward to seeing this one on the big screen!
A nice pic here for you courtesy of Jim de Koning (Thank You! x), a police officer in Brussels who is also appearing in a scene of’Kidnapping Freddy Heineken’ along with Sam.
Jim has a Twitter account to promote the movie, so please do take a look and follow him! @KidnapFHmovie
During a break in filming, this lovely pic was taken of them both:
‘The Gallipoli Story’, the four-part mini-series for Foxtel that we told you about back in June 2012, is likely to start filming in mid-2014 and will be aired in 2015, marking the 100th anniversary of the WWI campaign which sought to secure a safe sea route to Russia through this strategically important region of the Ottoman Empire.
The series, which is being produced by Matchbox Pictures and Sam’s Full Clip Productions, follows the story of Australian journalists Keith Murdoch, Charles BeSamsan and Phillip Schuler and Brit Ellis Ashmead Bartlett, who accompanied the troops to Gallipoli in 1915 and reveals how their quest for the truth helped change the war’s course.
Sam is one of the Executive Producers (along with Penny Win, Michael McMahon, Michael Schwarz and Luca Scalisi) and may also play one of the lead roles.
“Sam has been very involved in the development of the project, spending time in the writers’ room, says Jacquelin Perske, one of the writers. She added adding, “It’s very much a passion project for him.”
Perske has said the mini-series will almost certainly be shot in South Australia on similar locations to those featured in Peter Weir’s 1981 film Gallipoli.
Joining Jacquelin Perske in writing the screenplay are Shaun Grant, Cate Shortland and Stuart Beattie. The producers are Penny Chapman, John Schwarz and Perske. The director has yet to been announced yet.
NBCUniversal will distribute internationally.

Yup! Another fan was lucky enough to bump into Sam on the same day as Martina and he has allowed us to show his pics too!
And here’s one with his co-star from the movie ‘Kidnapping Freddy Heineken’, Jim Sturgess.
