Jim Broadbent (“Bridget Jones’s Diary”) and Ray Stevenson (“Thor”) have joined the cast of the Samuel L.Jackson thriller “Big Game”, according to Deadline.

Samuel L. Jackson is playing the president of the United States in the film that starts shooting today. It’s written and directed by Jalmari Helander, the Finnish helmer of 2010′s Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. The story centers on a shy 13-year-old boy (Onni Tommila) who undergoes a test of manhood by spending a day and night alone in the wilderness. On the same night, Air Force One is shot down by terrorists and the boy discovers the president in an escape pod in the forest where the pair team up in a struggle for survival. Also joining the cast is German actor Mehmet Kurtulus.

Jackson’s the type of actor that seems to be his hand up for anything these days, so it could go either way, but Broadbent’s signing suggests this might be half-decent – he seems like a fussy fellow, for good reason.
