Sam Worthington s going to star in the murder mystery pic Texas Killing Fields says The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie is based on a "true story of a pair of police officers who undertook to solve two decades of disappearances and homicides -- totalling as many as 60 victims -- in the industrial wastelands surrounding Gulf Coast refineries."
Worthington will play a hometown homicide detective who joins forces with a New York transplant to fight back against the unknown killers.
Director Michael Mann will be producing this film as his daughter, Ami Canaan Mann, is set to call action from a screenplay by Donald F. Ferrarone.
The younger Mann directed an episode of my favorite TV show Friday Night Lights this year-With her pops around and Worthington in the lead--I'm sold.
The movie will start shooting in April in Louisiana.
