HOLLYWOOD – Avengers star Samuel L. Jackson has signed up to play Serbian tennis maestro Novak Djokovich in Ben Affleck’s follow-up to the award-winning Argo.
“The action takes place at place London’s Gatwick Airport,” said Affleck:
Djokovich is due to play at Wimbledon but forgot his passport so British customs will not allow him to enter the country. Fearing he will miss the tournament his agent hires the services of disgraced former M16 agent John Cavendish (Bill Nighey) who famously smuggled John McEnroe out of Saudi Arabia in a cornflakes packet during the early 80s.
First you think it’s just another high octane thriller set in an airport but then everyone turns into a…ah hell. I don’t want to spoil it but let me tell you, it’s the biggest twist in the history of cinema.
