SNN: Sam Neill News (Also Frances O'Connor News)

October 28, 2010


What's star of the NBC Television Event Merlin up to these days? No, not dancing to promote eating red meat half the week (he already did that). Here's what:

ITEM 1: Sam Neill will join Frances O'Connor and his Daybreakers buddy Willem Dafoe in Daniel Nettheim's psychological thriller The Hunter. The story reportedly "centers on Martin, a mercenary sent from Europe by an anonymous biotech company to the Tasmanian wilderness on a dramatic hunt for the last Tasmanian tiger." Watch out, Martin: that's how most Looney Tunes' Taz shorts start.

ITEM 2: Sam Neill co-stars with Stephen Moyer, Richard Roxburgh, Claire Forlani, and, once again, Frances O'Connor in ICE, a post-apocalyptic disaster film about another ice age coming around to wipe everyone out. Yes, it looks as bad as it sounds. Here's the trailer for the SyFy-level production:

Could use more voice of Ray Romano.
