David Tennant will start work on Dean Devlin's Bad Samaritan in Portland, USA this December reports Variety.
Speaking about the film Dean told them:
“It’s the kind of bread-and-butter drama that major studios have mostly stopped doing, it’s not the typical buzzy title but people can tell that David and Robert (Sheehan) are going to be big. We’ve gotten huge interest so far at AFM.”
Dean has previously been full of praise for David, speaking last month he said:
"“David is going to bring a level of intensity that's going to really ratchet up the drama," Dean told local paper The Oregonian in a recent interview. The self-confessed Doctor Who fan also said, "He's something else, and when I met him, it was so hard to not fanboy the entire time. David is such an amazingly talented and gifted actor that he brings so many colours, and so much range to his roles. There were episodes of Doctor Who, for example, where he was hilarious, and episodes where he rips your heart out. He's amazingly versatile."
Of David’s character, he was more tight-lipped. "I can't tell you anything about it," he said. "But Tennant has passionate fans thanks to his time starring in Doctor Who, from 2005 to 2010. But he's also given memorable performances in the British drama, Broadchurch (as well as its less successful U.S. version, Gracepoint) and the Netflix series Jessica Jones, among other roles.”
The plot centres on two young car valet who work in a restaurant. "They've come up with a little scam to take things from people while they're at the restaurant, if they live close by,” he explained. “But they break into the wrong house, and a lot of bad things start to happen, and it escalates, and it keeps escalating and gets more scary."
David is currently filming Daisy Aitkens' romantic comedy, You, Me And Him, for Bad Penny Productions in Warwickshire, UK. Filming wraps at the end of this month.
