Sam Worthington and Jessica Chastain will soon be seen on the big screen together in The Debt, a dramatic thriller also starring Marton Csokas, Helen Mirren, Tom Worthington, and Ciaran Hinds. But The Debt isn’t the only film Worthington and Chastain co-star in. They’ve also got Texas Killing Fields, directed by Michael Mann’s daughter, Ami Canaan Mann, and based on a true story, coming in October.

The cast is impressive – in addition to Worthington and Chastain, the film features Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Chloe Moretz – and the trailer for the R-rated drama really hooks you in. Set for an October 7, 2011 release, Texas Killing Fields follows two police detectives who investigate 60+ unsolved murders in an area known as the ‘killing fields.’

The Plot: Inspired by the string of real-life unsolved murders in a small Texan town, this tense and haunting thriller follows a local homicide detective (Sam Worthington), and his partner, a transplanted cop from New York City (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as they track a sadistic serial killer dumping his female victims’ mutilated bodies in a nearby marsh dubbed “The Killing Fields.” The killer changes the game and begins hunting the detectives, teasing them with possible clues at the crime scenes while always remaining one step ahead. When a familiar local girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) goes missing the detectives find themselves in a race against time to find their killer before she is murdered.
