Samuel L Jackson set for Deathgames
Samuel L Jackson and Twilight's Kellan Lutz are in talks to star in Deathgames.
The indie action movie from Motion Picture Corporation Of America (MPCA) is about a young man who is kidnapped and forced into the savage world of a modern gladiator arena, where men fight to the death to entertain online audiences, Heat Vision blog reports.
Lutz would play the lead and Jackson would be the character who organises the games, overseeing them from his computer lair with the help of twin ladies who see to his every desire.
Jonah Loop, a visual effects supervisor on thrillers Collateral and A Perfect Getaway, is making his directorial debut with the film, which begins shooting next month in Louisiana.
MPCA's Brad Krevoy and Mike Callaghan are producing with Mark Williams.
