Michael Mann has just spilled on about his daughter taking up her first directorial venture. The film is titled The Fields, a fact based drama that marks the feature directing debut of Ami Canaan Mann who is Michael Mannâ€™s daughter.
Mann will produce the movie along with Michael Jaffe and shooting will begin in Louisiana on April 5 th. The drama is about a true story of a pair of detectives investigating a series of unsolved murders in a stretch of bayous near the oil refineries in coastal Texas where as many as 70 bodies have turned up over the past 30 year.
â€œSam read it, met Ami, and he was in. And for me, this is a dream come true to enable Ami to do this,â€ Michael Mann told. â€œSam will be playing jack, this tough minded misanthropic Texan, who wish his partner Brian wind up waging something of a war against these unknown assailants, a ferocious battle to save each other and the life of this young street kid.â€
The film sounds really interesting. But Iâ€™m still not sure what is that Sam Worthington can bring to this role.
