The Super Bowl is currently playing in the background, but the work-too-much movie geek in me found this article, and since this film is set in the greatest state on the planet, I feel compelled to get it up. Sam Worthington (TERMINATOR: SALVATION, AVATAR, and the soon-to-be-released CLASH OF THE TITANS) has signed on to star in THE FIELD. The film will follow a "Texas homicide detective [Worthington] who joins with a New York detective to investigate unsolved murders in the Texas bayous." One thing Worthington will need to nail for this to be believable is the Texas Twang. If he don't got that, he ain't havin' a good review from us folks over here at GordonandtheWhale.com.

The screenplay - which is based on a true story - was written by Don Ferrarone and will be directed by Ami Canaan Mann. There are three things I realized while doing my research, this will mark Ferrarone's writing debut and Mann's feature length directorial debut. Since "this is going to be a disaster" is the next thing you think I'm going to say, I'm going to finish this paragraph off with this: Ami is Michael Mann's (who is a producer on the film) daughter, so if she went to a lot of "bring your kid to work" days, then she's going to be just fine.

Pre-production has started in Lousiana, and shooting is slated for April. Yee-haw!
