Robert is joining David Tennant in Bad Samaritan directed by Dean Devlin which is set to begin filming later this year . The thriller evolves around a pair of young valets who use their business as a front to burglarize the houses of their unsuspecting patrons. The two find themselves way out of their depth when they target the wrong house with a woman inside being held captive.
Some of you may remember the Hunger interview back in October last year  where Robert spoke of being a part of another one of Devlin’s films;
Hunger: Next year is a busy year for you then with Geostorm‘s release as well…
Yep, that’s coming out! There’s a project that the director of Geostorm, Dean Devlin wants me to do. Hopefully going to shoot that in the first quarter of next year and it’s a thriller set in a neighbourhood in Portland. Hopefully that will happen but it’s based on schedules. That’s the thing about being an actor, you’re constantly floating around in a chaos soup waiting for other people’s schedules to align with your own. That’s my foggy future for the time being!
I had my eye on Dean Devlin’s upcoming film called No Good Deed for quite some time as the plot sounded similar to the one Robert had described back in October, and as it turns out that Bad Samaritan is, in fact, the same film. You can check out the IMDB here. Robert has yet to be added. We can expect Bad Samaritan to release sometime next year!
