Samuel L. Jackson Does the "Unthinkable"

He once starred in a film called Unbreakable and now he's starring in a completely unrelated movie named Unthinkable. That's right, our favorite badass, Samuel L. Jackson, has taken a starring role in the forthcoming political thriller. Jackson's keeping busy lately, with several films in the can and a slew of new roles in the pipeline.
Unthinkable is about a national security threat, due to the fact that the locations of three nuclear devices are known only to a terrorist. The fate of the world hangs in the balance and rests on the shoulders of a female FBI agent and a black ops investigator. We're going to venture a guess here and say that Jackson is most likely going to play the black ops investigator who ends up saving the world and destroying the bad guy with a single glance.
The film begins production in Detroit in September and will be produced and financed by Senator Entertainment. It will be directed by Gregor Jordan, who also lensed the film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' The Informers.
Bring on the bad guys. They don't stand a snowball's chance in hell against Samuel L.
