Helen Mirren, Sam Worthington Owe a ‘Debt’



After seeing Sam Worthington in Clash of the Titans, I’m a little skeptical of his acting prowess. That being said, I’m all for second chances, and since The Debt also has the great Helen Mirren in it, that’s enough for me to get excited.

The trailer for The Debt appeared online today, courtesy of Yahoo Movies. John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) is directing this remake of an Israeli film from 2007. Also starring alongside Mirren and Worthington are CiarĂ¡n Hinds, Marton Csokas, Jessica Chastain and Tom Wilkinson.

Synopsis: In 1965, three young Israeli Mossad agents on a secret mission capture and kill a notorious Nazi war criminal. Now, thirty years later, a man claiming to be the Nazi has surfaced in the Ukraine and one of the former agents must go back undercover to seek out the truth. Starring: Sam Worthington, Helen Mirren and Tom Wilkinson.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.



Look for the film in theaters Dec. 29, 2010.
