Samuel L. Jackson has been many things in his career, but a serial killer is not one of them. Judging by the first trailer for Reasonable Doubt, he is just the bad ass to go toe-to-toe with Dominic Cooper’s (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) prosecuting attorney in a game of cat and mouse.
Jackson (now appearing in Oldboy) portrays a man who is charged in the hit and run death of a man one fateful evening. See, it was really Cooper’s character who committed the crime and his prosecutor throws the case for fear of incriminating himself. Overcome by his guilt, he decides that he will find a way to make Jackson pay. Upon digging deeper, he discovers that Jackson may be the man who police have been looking for who committed a series of murders.
The only thing… Jackson knows Cooper was the man who committed the murderous hit and run. Let the games begin.
Reasonable Doubt lands in theaters January 17.
