*Cameras begin rolling today on “Big Game,” an action adventure film staring Samuel L. Jackson as the president of the United States.

The story centers on a shy 13-year old boy (Onni Tommila) who undergoes a test of manhood by spending a day and night alone in the wilderness. On the same night, Air Force One is shot down by terrorists and the boy discovers the president in an escape pod in the forest where the pair team up in a struggle for survival.

It’s written and directed by Jalmari Helander, the Finnish helmer of 2010’s “Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.” Oscar-winner Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson and German actor Mehmet Kurtulus.
