Samuel L.Jackson will play the US President in “Big Game”, Screen Daily reports.

The film, the English-language debut from Jalmari Helander (“Rare Exports”), is one of two projects Altitude Entertainment has in the works.

“Big Game” is an action-adventure about “a shy 13-year-old Finnish boy who has to spend the night in a local forest to prove his manhood; but when Air Force One is shot down by terrorists and the boy meets the US president, they fight to save themselves.”

The movie, which has Alex Garland (“Dredd”) attached as a producer, will shoot in Finland and Germany.

The other Altitude Entertainment release on the boil is “The Loch”, a Peter Mullan starring horror thriller “that is an update on the Loch Ness monster myth. The story follows a family hiding their own secrets who encounter dark forces on a weekend holiday near Loch Ness. It will shoot in late 2013.”

Simon Duric co-wrote and will direct.

Will Clarke, CEO and Chairman of Altitude Film Entertainment said: “With four films going into production we have had a phenomenally exciting and successful first year.

“We are achieving what we set out to do by working with the best of UK and international talent and distinctive filmmakers in developing and producing highly commercial projects from the ground up and bringing them to market.

“To be attracting world-class talent such as Samuel L Jackson and Peter Mullan and working with filmmakers such as James Watkins and Jalmari Helander is indicative of the quality of the projects, the ambition of the films we want Altitude to be involved in and the creative relationships we are enjoying.”
