Do you like Samuel L. Jackson? Do you like swords?? If you answered ‘yes’, you are Quentin Tarantino. But it also means that you’ll be a huge fan of Jackson’s upcoming project.

Over the last few years, Jackson has successfully lined his Bad Motherfucker wallet by voicing Afro Samurai in the miniseries of the same name, as well as the animated TV movie, Afro Samurai: Resurrection. Now Jackson is teaming with The Idomina Group and Gonzo Studios for a live-action adaptation of the popular anime. The plan is to attach a writer and director soon and then begin the casting process before heading down to the Dominican Republic to film. Though their names haven’t come up yet, Michael Jai White and the RZA would be wise to make sure that their passports are current. (Coming Soon)

Samuel L. Jackson is going to be the most foul-mouthed samaritan ever. Before he gets to work on the widely-anticipated The Avengers, he will be tackling a more vulnerable and less eye-patchy character named Foley in The Samaritan. Jackson will play a grifter who attempts to set his life straight after spending 20 years in the clink, but gets sucked back into the life by a former protegé. At press time, it was unknown if Jackson’s character was one day away from retirement and/or in the process of buying a boat.

I love the idea of Sam Jackson playing a grifter. The man has no shortage of confidence, and I’m pretty sure that he could get me to assault my own mother if he yelled at me enough. The film will be directed by David Weaver with Luke Kirby and Ruth Negga costarring. The film starts shooting this weekend in Toronto, where polite Canadians will simply smile and nod every time Jackson screams “motherfucker!” at passing strollers. (Deadline)
