One of the hardest working men in showbiz, Samuel L. Jackson’s indie drama Reasonable Doubt, which he stars in alongside Dominic Cooper and Gloria Reuben, has been picked up by Lionsgate (US rights), for a 2014 release.

The $8 million German-Canadian co-production, shot over 27 days in November and December last year, in Winnipeg and Chicago, was written by Peter Dowling, and directed by Peter Howitt. It centers on an up-and-coming assistant D.A. (Cooper) who has his life turned upside down when he’s involved in a hit and run and another man (Jackson) is arrested for his crime and charged with murder.

The film, a co-production between Paradox Entertainment, South Creek Pictures, and Bavariapool, was previously titled The Good Samaritan, and may have gotten the name change because Samuel L. Jackson starred in a recent film called The Samaritan, which was released on home video last fall. 

The film’s first trailer follows:
