First Look: Worthington in Debt, Cage in Hungry Rabbit Jumps
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, Ciarán 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.
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!
