If you're ready to see actor Sam Worthington branch out and leave the swords, sandals and blue CG-skin behind, then you're going to want to keep an eye out for The Texas Killing Fields.
The film, directed by the legendary Michael Mann's daughter Ami Canaan Mann, revolves around Worthington's sheriff character who's partnered up with a new cop from New York (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) to hunt down a elusive serial killer. In this exclusive clip from the film, we get a sense of the film's moody tone, a chase between Worthington, Morgan and the killer, shrouded in shadow.
The Texas Killing Fields co-stars Chloe Moretz and Jessica Chastain, and hits theaters October 14.
The Texas Killing Fields trailer recreates the true story of the desert wasteland outside Texas City, wherein over sixty murder victims have been discovered over the past forty years. Sam Worthington and Chloe Moretz lead a cast in what seems to be a somewhat disjointed and flat adaptation of the real-life horror story.
The film, which will be playing at the 2011 Venice Film Festival and opens October 7. Ami Canaan Mann (Heat) directs a cast including Stephen Graham (who will be returning as Al Capone in the upcoming season of Boardwalk Empire), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen), Jessica Chastain (The Help) and Jason Clarke (Public Enemies).
