Screen Yorkshire has made its biggest production investment to date on $25m US-UK co-production Hunter’s Prayer (previously known as For The Dogs).
Avatar and Clash of the Titans star Sam Worthington will star as an assassin in director Jonathan Mostow’s (Terminator 3) thriller, which is due to shoot in the UK and Hungary in 2015.
The film is the first US production to get backing from Screen Yorkshire, which would not reveal the amount invested but confirmed it to be above £1m.
Casting is currently underway on the female lead. Emma Roberts and Hailee Steinfeld were both previously linked to the project but are no longer in the frame.
