Samuel L Jackson and Vincent Cassel action-thriller begins filming in Scotland
Samuel L Jackson and Vincent Cassel are teaming up for an action-thriller, now filming in Scotland.
Damaged follows the story of a Chicago detective who heads to Scotland when an emerging serial killer’s crimes match those that he investigated five years earlier. One of the crime scenes was the murder of his girlfriend.
Starring alongside Marvel's Samuel L Jackson and Westworld's Vincent Cassel, respectively, are Gianni Capaldi (A Day to Die), Kate Dickie (The Witch), and John Hannah (The Mummy). Terry McDonagh, whose credits include episodes of Killing Eve, Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, and Jimmy McGovern’s The Street, for which he won a BAFTA and an International Emmy, will direct.
Red Sea Media and BondIt Media Capital, both out of California, will finance with Red Sea also handling sales. Paul Aniello and Red Sea’s Roman Kopelevich are producing, with BondIt’s Luke Taylor and Matthew Helderman executive-producing alongside Marcie Sinaiko and Roman Viaris.
Scottish sports streaming company Stream Digital, which recently moved into the film business with its studios in Livingston, is partnering with Red Sea Media and Bondit Media Capital to make the movie.
Red Sea's Kopelevich said: "Love this project. We have been involved with it for several years and am proud to have attracted such an amazing cast and team. Can't wait to bring it to our partners in the distribution world."
Stream Digital’s CEO Paul Aniello added: "We are really excited and proud to be working with such a great team of people to bring this story to life. We have a great director; a great cast and script and we believe this will be a real success."
