Papa John Winchester, aka Jeffrey Dean Morgan, sure has a full plate these days. Watchmen‘s Comedian is about to play yet another game of murder and intrigue with Hollywood’s latest golden boy, Sam Worthington, in the new thriller The Fields.
According to Bloody Disgusting Morgan will star as a detective transplanted from New York while the Avatar lead will portray a local investigator probing a series of unsolved murders in industrial wastelands surrounding Gulf Coast refineries, where as many as 70 bodies have turned up over the past two decades. Together they wage a war against the unknown assailants.
The Fields — which was originally called Texas Killing Fields — will be directed by Ami Canaan Mann, daughter of Michael Mann, in a co-production between Bill Block’s QED Intl. and Mann’s Forward Pass shingle. The script was penned by former DEA agent Donald F. Ferrarone, and production is scheduled to begin April 5th in Louisiana.
