Sam Worthington to Produce ‘DumDum’

Sam is developing a new action film from first-time writer James Abrams titled ‘DumDum.’

The Tracking Board describe the movie as an ‘ultra-violent comic book styled action piece,’ comparing it to the critically acclaimed ‘John Wick’, starring Keanu Reeves, and Jason Statham-starrer ‘Crank’.

The script by Abrams was a finalist for the 2012 Script Pipeline.

Sam will produce through Full Clip Productions, and is currently looking for a director for the project.

Sam Worthington, Ruth Wilson and Sofia Boutella have signed up to star in sci-fi movie ‘The Titan’.

The project is being produced by Leon Clarance and Motion Picture Capital (who are fully financing the project), Brian Kavanaugh-Jones’ Automatik, Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken’s 42, and Arash Amel.

Production is due to start on January 18th 2016 in Europe, with director Lennart Ruff making his feature debut.

Voltage Pictures will launch international sales during the upcoming Toronto Film Festival, with CAA handling domestic sales.

Based on an original story by Arash Amel (‘Grace of Monaco’), and written by Max Hurwitz (‘Hell on Wheels’), ‘The Titan’ is set in the not too distant future, and the story follows the riveting journey of a military family who are relocated, in order to take part in a ground-breaking experiment to further Man’s genetic evolution into space.

Sam just finished Lionsgate’s ‘The Shack’, and can next be seen in Working Title’s ‘Everest’, which is opening the 2015 Venice Film Festival on 2nd September.

He is set to shoot ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ with Mel Gibson directing this fall before going on to do ‘The Titan’, followed by James Cameron’s Avatar sequels.

‘The Titan’ is, at its core, a love story that is set in the pioneering edge of space exploration, a world of fear and wonder,” says Arash. “In Brian and Ben, I’ve been lucky enough to find smart, dedicated producing partners to embark on this adventure with, and we now find ourselves surrounded by a highly talented group of artists led by Ruth Wilson and Sam Worthington, under the direction of the incredible Lennart Ruff. I’m very excited that this team will be bringing this passion project to the screen, and to continue the relationship with Automatik, 42, and Motion Picture Capital.

Kavanaugh-Jones adds, “When Arash shared his vision of ‘The Titan’ with me, I was blown away. To pair that vision with the directing talent of Lennart Ruff and the incredible acting talent of Sam and Ruth is a dream come true. And I’m absolutely thrilled to be collaborating with old friends in Leon Clarance, Voltage and 42.

I look forward to working with Brian again, and to collaborating with Voltage, 42 and Arash on this brilliantly atmospheric, character-driven sci-fi thriller. Sam Worthington, Ruth Wilson, and Sofia Boutella form a hugely talented ensemble cast, and their performances will bring to life Max Hurwitz’s innovative and original script,” said Clarance.

The Voltage team stated that “The production team has delivered an amazing cast to compliment a highly inventive and unique script and after seeing Lennart’s award winning short film, we believe this is exactly the type of material that our buyers will respond to.

Sam Worthington is set to star opposite Luke Bracey, Andrew Garfield, and Vince Vaughn, in the Mel Gibson-directed ‘Hacksaw Ridge’.

Based on a script written by Robert Schenkkan and Randall Wallace, the movie tells the story of Desmond Doss, the first Conscientious Objector in American history to be awarded the Medal Of Honor for bravery in World War II.

The project is set to begin filming next month in Australia, and the NSW state government predicts it will generate more than 700 jobs, and inject more than $26 million into the Sydney and regional NSW economy.

‘Hacksaw Ridge’ is based on the true story of conscientious objector, and Seventh-Day Adventist, Desmond Doss, who refused to kill or bear arms because of his religious beliefs, but served as a medic alongside the Americans fighting the Japanese in the Pacific.

The film focuses on the 1945 battle of Okinawa, where Doss single-handedly moved 75 injured men to safety whilst under enemy fire. He was awarded the congressional medal of honour for his bravery by US President Harry Truman, and was also awarded a Purple Heart three times, and a Bronze star medal.

During the official movie announcement at Sydney’s Fox Studios, Mel said he and his team are set to create a film that everyone will be in demand by viewers.

It’s about a man who wouldn’t touch a weapon, and wanted to be part of saving lives in the worst place on earth. I mean, Okinawa was a horrific place…there were over 300,000 casualties, mostly civilian,” Mel explained. “We’ll make a five star flick here.

It is expected to be completed towards the end of 2016.

IM Global’s Stuart Ford has been selling, whilst the film is produced by Bill Mechanic and David Permut, with Terry Benedict and Steve Longi co-producing.

‘Hacksaw Ridge’ will be Gibson’s fifth directorial outing, after ‘Apocalypto’, ‘The Passion of the Christ’, ‘Braveheart’, and ‘The Man Without a Face’.

Tim McGraw and Alice Braga are to join Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer in Lionsgate’s adaptation of the 2007 best-selling novel by William Paul Young.

Radha Mitchell, Graham Greene and Aviv Alush will also co-star, while newcomer Amelie Eve will play Sam’s missing daughter.

Other cast additions include Megan Charpentier and Gage Munroe.

Stuart Hazeldine, director of ‘The Shack’ revealed the news on Sunday, saying “We have a great cast and a great crew bringing The Shack to life after many years of development. Excited to finally start shooting tomorrow.”

Gil Netter is producing the project via his Netter Productions, along with Brad Cummings.

Lionsgate’s Mike Paseornek, Matthew Janzen and Bree Bailey are overseeing the project on behalf of the studio, which acquired rights to the book in 2013. So far, ‘The Shack’ has sold more than 19 million copies in 39 languages.

Production started on Monday.
