The Beast will include Samuel L. Jackson as the US president.

adminSeptember 7, 2023

For “The Beast,” Samuel L. Jackson is in negotiations to portray the US president. The first important project for the Toronto International Film Festival has been released, and the 74-year-old actor will appear alongside Joel Kinnaman in it.

The movie has an interim arrangement with SAG-AFTRA to begin pre-production because it was packaged before the Hollywood actors’ strikes began.

The presidential limousine known as “The Beast” by the Secret Service is referenced in the title of the film. The unbreakable vehicle is equipped with grenades, shotguns, armor, and bomb-resistant materials.

The president (Jackson) learns the full scope of The Beast’s highly classified capabilities when a hostile militia plans a coup against the US.

In order to protect himself, Secret Service agent Taft (Kinnaman), and his country, the president must master The Beast, the creature that resides within of him.

The Meg and Transformers: Rise of the Beasts director James Madigan is helming the film from a screenplay by Umair Aleem. Jackson has already performed the role of the US president on the big screen in the 2014 film “Big Game.”

The “Snakes in a Plane” actor believes that a deleted sequence from “A Time to Kill,” a 1996 film in which he plays a guy on trial for killing two white men who kidnapped and raped his daughter, prevented him from being nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar.

Samuel said to Vulture: “On my first day of work on that movie, I gave a speech in a room with an actor, and when I ended, the whole f****** set was in tears. I said, “Okay.” I’m on the appropriate page.

That s*** doesn’t appear in the film! And I am aware of the reason. because they weren’t trying to make me a star and it wasn’t my movie.
