After a run of award winning, award nominated performances in Australian films, Sam Worthington burst onto the international stage with a trio of high profile Hollywood films. Terminator Salvation, Avatar and Clash of The Titans have certainly made sure everyone knows who he is; but before Clash of The Titans 2 hits screens next in spring 2013, Worthington will have been in four lower key films. We’ve had the marriage in trouble drama, with Keira Knightly, ‘Last Night’; January 2012 will see ‘Man on A Ledge’; and the next 6 weeks will see first the ensemble Nazi hunter thriller, ‘The Debt’ were he joins Helen Mirren, Ciarán Hinds and Tom Wilkinson as well as co-star of this film Jessica Chastain.

The Debt; TV spots and a trailer for Helen Mirren & Sam Worthington's Nazi Hunter’s thriller...

So there’s plenty of opportunity for Worthington to show / remind viewers that Clash of The Titans was all down to the generally dire movie and not his acting ability, before the (it surely can’t be worse) sequel arrives.


“Inspired by true events, this tense and haunting thriller follows Detective Souder (Sam Worthington), a homicide detective in a small Texan town, and his partner, transplanted New York City cop Detective Heigh (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as they track a sadistic serial killer dumping his victims' mutilated bodies in a nearby marsh locals call "The Killing Fields." Though the swampland crime scenes are outside their jurisdiction, Detective Heigh is unable to turn his back on solving the gruesome murders. Despite his partner's warnings, he sets out to investigate the crimes. Before long, the killer changes the game and begins hunting the detectives, teasing them with possible clues at the crime scenes while always remaining one step ahead. When familiar local girl Anne (Chloe Grace Moretz) goes missing, the detectives find themselves racing against time to catch the killer and save the young girl's life.”

 Any excuse the watch the increasingly impressive child actress Chloe Grace Moretz is a good thing and she genuinely seems to get better from film to film. (They Eye, Kick Ass, Let Me In). Jessica Chastain  is riding high on the success of The help and will also have been seen in The Debt by the time this film comes out. I’ve got a lot of time for Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, Grey’s Anatomy, The Losers) too so there’s a lot going for this film in terms of the casting.
