Noyce to direct ‘Mixed Blood’

Samuel L. Jackson stars in indie cop thriller

Phillip Noyce will direct the indie police thriller “Mixed Blood,” with Samuel L. Jackson to co-star.

A Bigger Boat, GreeneStreet Films and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment are co-financing and producing the project. Jackson’s Uppity Films will also produce.

Kelly Masterson (“Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead”) is adapting Roger Smith’s novel of the same name, published last year by Henry Holt & Co.

Pic will center on an American fugitive being forced to make violent and terrifying choices to protect his family while drawing the attention of murderers, kidnappers, corrupt cops and a detective, portrayed by Jackson.

Principal photography is scheduled to start early next year.

FilmNation will handle worldwide sales through its partnership with A Bigger Boat and GreeneStreet Films.

Noyce is directing “Salt,” starring Angelina Jolie, for Columbia. Masterson is completing “Good People” for the Film Department, with Maguire Entertainment and 360 Management producing.
