Samuel L. Jackson has been set to star in The Samaritan for H20 Motion Pictures. Luke Kirby and Ruth Negga will co-star. Take a look at the official synopsis below, from the H20 Motion Pictures official website.

"After twenty years in prison, Foley (Jackson) is finished with the grifter's life. When he meets an elusive young woman named Iris (Negga), the possibility of a new start looks real. But his past is proving to be a stubborn companion: Ethan (Kirby), the son of his former partner, has an ingenious plan and he wants Foley in. The harder he tries to escape his past, the tighter he is ensnared in Ethan's web of secrets, until it becomes all too clear to Foley that some wrongs can never be made right."

Canadian director David Weaver will helm the project, which begins production on Sunday. Filming will take place in Toronto and Rio de Janeiro. Andras Hamori will produce with Mark Musselman attached as executive producer.

It isn't clear when The Samaritan will be released.
