Phillip Noyce Directing Samuel Jackson in Mixed Blood

Samuel Jackson - Mixed Blood

Another new project for Catch a Fire director Phillip Noyce. Samuel Jackson is attached to star in the thriller Mixed Blood with Noyce set to direct starting early next year. Based on screenwriter Roger Smith's novel of the same name, which was published in March, the story is set in South Africa and centers on an American fugitive trying to protect his family who's drawn into a world of murderers, kidnappers and corrupt cops. Jackson will play a good detective who goes by the nickname Disaster Zondi. Kelly Masterson, who previously wrote Before the Devil Knows You're Dead for Sidney Lumet, is writing this adaptation.

GreeneStreet Films, which optioned the novel in February, is co-financing and producing the project with A Bigger Boat and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment. Noyce is currently finishing up the highly anticipated action thriller Salt starring Angelina Jolie, which is probably putting him back in the spotlight in Hollywood, since he otherwise hasn't had many big hitters in the last decade. Noyce is probably best known as the director of Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger in the 90's. His last film was Catch a Fire in 2006. It should be great to see him working with Sam Jackson on a thriller like this. We'll let you know who else they cast.
