Samuel L. Jackson Will Try To Save Gravity In Sci-Fi Film "Inversion"
Samuel L. Jackson has adorned many hats throughout his career as an actor, and now he will try to save gravity in his latest role.
In a report from Variety Jackson has signed on for a role in the upcoming sci-fi movie Inversion. He will portray a senior Homeland Security agent pursuing two people (protagonists Liu Yifei and "street wise American con man" Travis Fimmel) that he thinks are responsible for "a terrifying loss of gravity" affecting the Earth.
The $130 million movie is directed by Peter Segal, with the screenplay written by Paul Haggis, David Arata and Bragi Schut. Inversion is set to begin principal photography on February 27 at Babelsberg Studios in Berlin, and will continue in Shanghai and Chicago.
Aside from Inversion Jackson also has a number of other upcoming films he is a part of including: D.J. Caruso's follow-up xXx: Return of Xander Cage; Jordan Vogt-Roberts' origin story Kong: Skull Island; Patrick Hughes' action-comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard; and Brie Larson's directorial debut Unicorn Store. He also is featured in the voice cast of Blazing Samurai and will reprise his role as Nick Fury in Avengers: Infinity War.
The 67 year old actor also recently stated that he would be interested in reprising his role as Mace Windu in the Star Wars series.
In an interview with ET Jackson voiced his thoughts on a particular fan theory where Mace Windu survived in Revenge Of The Sith, and became Supreme Leader Snoke, the humanoid alien of the sequel trilogy introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
"I'm not a part of that rumor or theory," Jackson said. "I would like for Mace Windu to just be Mace Windu. I'm of the idea that Jedi can fall from enormous heights and still survive. The fact that he cut his hand off is not a big deal [either]. There are a lot of one handed Jedi or Jedi with robotic or enhanced hands in that world. So hopefully I can be one of them."
