Sam Worthington Has One For The Dogs
Starring in Phillip Noyce's latest

Sam Worthington

It’s been a couple of years since Phillip Noyce made Salt, and though he’s got several possible new movies at the script stage, few seem to be making much progress. Such is life in Hollywood... Now, however, he might be on to a winner with indie action thriller For The Dogs, as Sam Worthington is attached to star.

The Messenger/Rampart writer/director Oren Moverman is sticking to script-only duty for this one, based on Kevin Wignall’s titular novel. Moverman isn’t the first writer attached; he’s redrafted a script first tackled by Paul Leyden.

For The Dogs will find Worthington as an assassin who for some reason decides to help a college girl get revenge on the people who slaughtered her parents and younger brother. You just know it can’t end well.

Still, it’ll make a change for Worthington to be fighting people and not giant CGI creatures, though he’s already shot high concept war film Thunder Run and David Ayer’s new crime/action thriller Ten, which sees him appearing alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Assuming the producers can round up the requisite funding at the Berlin Film Festival, For The Dogs should kick off shooting this year.
