Brendan Fraser is a sort of 21st Century version of the b-movie actors of the 1950s – quite popular but rarely in anything that’s all that good. He’s had a particularly rough patch with the likes of Extraordinary Measures and Furry Vengeance, but he’s got an awful lot of film in post-production and now he’s signed up to make one more, the action thriller Split Decision.
Fraser plays a father who must defend his two children from a pair of murderers. The girls witness a killing while on a wilderness camping trip with a family friend. The two criminal brothers (Dominic Purcell and Ethan Suplee) behind the killing start to hunt down the children to silence them, so Fraser sets out to rescue them.
Damian Lee has written and will direct the film, which starts shooting in Canada soon. (Source: THR)
