First Look: Worthington in Debt, Cage in Hungry Rabbit Jumps

July 19, 2010

Sam Worthington

A few new first look photos courtesy of Entertainment Weekly to share. EW recently unveiled a massive first look feature, comprised mainly of shots from various TV shows, but there are two photos we have not seen. The first one is for The Debt, starring Sam Worthington, Helen Mirren, CiarĂ¡n Hinds & Tom Wilkinson. Directed by John Madden (Shakespeare in Love, Killshot) the film is a remake of a 2007 Israeli film called HaHov, rewritten by Kick-Ass team Matthew Vaughn & Jane Goldman. It tells the story of a former Mossad agent (Mirren) who revisits a decades-old mission to kill a notorious Nazi war criminal when he resurfaces.

In The Debt, Worthington plays a fellow agent in the flashbacks. The film arrives in theaters December 29th.

Nicolas Cage & January Jones in The Hungry Rabbit Jumps

The second new EW first look photo, seen just above, shows Nicolas Cage and "Mad Men" star January Jones in a film called The Hungry Rabbit Jumps, written by Robert Tannen, directed by Aussie-Kiwi filmmaker Roger Donaldson (Species, Dante's Peak, The Recruit, The Bank Job). Cage plays a man whose life is turned upside down when his wife (Jones) is assaulted and he makes a deal with a mysterious group offering vigilante justice. But this ain't your typical revenge flick. "It's got tons of surprises," says producer Ram Bergman. "'It's more like The Game or Strangers on a Train than a Charles Bronson movie." I'm sold, I'm a sucker for those kind of twisty-turny thrillers, and this sounds good. Stay tuned for updates on both!

    i know i cant be alone but i feel worthington will fade into obscurity
  • Both of these projects have been on my radar for a while and I'm excited to see them coming along. The Debt definitely sounds like my kind of film, and I hope Sam Worthington puts in another solid supporting role - he's a great actor (and seems to be a really down to earth guy) who made a few bad choices. Still, alongside Mirren, Hinds and Wilkinson we'll see how good he really is.

    Well nelson I think Worthington has two types of fans, those who want him to succeed and those who don't. I'm one of the ones who wants him to do good, and to answer your question he will probably have a decent career.

    oo jeeze,i thought that was bourne in that photo lol, i wonder who would win in a fight....
  • I'm definitely with Xerxex on this one...he just needs to challenge himself some more and pass on the action roles for a bit. I think he'll be around for a long time to come though in the same way that Leo was catapulted into fame by Titanic. ...give him some time, he'll come around.

    Worthington is the shit. Big fan here. Love the guy. Cage is campy, but all kinds of awesome.
  • Eli
    I haven't completely ruled out Worthington as an actor. The rest of the cast for The Debt seems pretty solid. Downside to this? It's a remake. Let's hope it does justice for the fading and upcoming stars.
  • CGjohnson
    I think Worthington looks like "Flyboy", from the original Dawn of the Dead, in the photo up top. SOMEONE else has to see it too...
  • Cody w
    In my opinion Worthington is a decent actor but like #5 said in time I think he will prove an excellent actor. Plus hasnt he only been in the spotlight since T4?
  • beavis
    worthington seems ok to me...........and i'm really excited about both of these movies. the debt sounds like it might have a "munich" vibe.......... and with "hungry rabbit", there BETTER be a new twist to it because otherwise it's a standard revenge flick and isn't on my radar anymore.

    Im really looking forward to watching The Hungry Rabbit Jumps. How come still no release date?
