Peter Howitt's Reasonable Doubt, formerly called The Good Samaritan, has landed Samuel L. Jackson and Dominic Cooper.
Variety reports that production on the film scripted by Flightplan's Peter Dowling, is scheduled to begin November 19th, in Canada.
Reasonable Doubt follows an up-and-coming assistant district attorney who's prosecuting a deadly cast of hit and run with inconclusive evidence. After the trial, he's left chasing the very man he got acquitted.
Paradox Entertainment's Fredrik Malmberg and Daniel Wagner produce along with Silvio Muraglia and Frank Buchs of Bavariapool and South Creek Pictures' Dave Valleau.
Cooper received critical-acclaim for his work on Lionsgate's The Devil's Double. He played Henry Sturgess in Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and is in post-production phase on Dead Man Down and Summer in February.
Jackson was Nick Fury in Marvel's The Avengers and can be seen next in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, alongside Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington and Don Johnson.
