Hello and welcome to Sam Claflin Source, a fansite dedicated to the very talented actor Sam Claflin and his fans. We aim to bring you all the latest news, photos and information on Sam. Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you again very soon!



Jamie Dornan, riding high on the $140m global debut of Fifty Shades Freed, will star opposite Sam Clafin in the IRA action thriller Borderland, which IMR International has introduced to EFM buyers here in Berlin.

Brian Kirk (Game Of Thrones, Luther) will direct the 1970s London-set feature, described as being in the vein of Michael Mann’s crime thriller Heat. CAA and UTA Independent Film Group represent US rights.

Borderland will focus on two men on opposite sides of the bloody conflict between the IRA and the British government.

When an IRA operative (Dornan) is dispatched to London to head a new unit and wreak havoc, he uses the move to hunt down the person responsible for the accidental lethal shooting of his wife – an SAS captain (Clafin) who happens to be hunting the Irishman.

Production is scheduled to kick off this summer in London and Dublin.

Ronan Bennett wrote the screenplay and producers are Chris Coen for Unanimous Entertainment, Rebecca Brown, and Alan Moloney of Parallel Film Productions.

Dornan will next be seen in Otto Bathurst’s Robin Hood: Origins and recently wrapped A Private War opposite Rosamund Pike for Matthew Heineman.

Clafin recently starred in Journey’s End and Me Before You, and his credits include The Hunger Games franchise, and Their Finest. He recently completed Jennifer Kent’s psychological thriller The Nightingale, and will next be seen in Baltasar Kormákur’s drama Adrift starring alongside Shailene Woodley. [Source]




Suicide Squad‘s Jai Courtney has been set to star with Nat Wolff in Henry-Alex Rubin’s crime thriller Semper Fi. From Sparkhouse Media and Rumble Films, the project has further added Finn Wittrock, Beau Knapp, Arturo Castro and Leighton Meester. Principal photography starts February 1 in Louisiana. Cornerstone Films is handling international sales with UTA and CAA co-repping domestic.

Murderball director Rubin is helming from a script he wrote with Sean Mullin. The story sees Courtney as Cal, a by-the-book police officer who makes ends meet as a Marine Corps reservist along with his rowdy and inseparable group of childhood friends. When Cal’s younger, reckless half-brother Oyster (Wolff) accidentally kills a guy in a bar fight and tries to flee, Cal forces him to face the music.

After an unfair sentence, Oyster fights for survival in a dangerous Pennsylvania prison system while Cal and his friends are deployed to fight the lethal insurgency in Iraq. Overseas, Cal’s world is shaken, and after he barely makes it home alive, he resolves to break Oyster out of prison — no matter the cost.

American Horror Story’s Wittrock, Sand Castle’s Knapp and Narcos’ Castro are the gang that rally to his side in a bare-knuckled prison break to right the injustice.

Semper Fi is produced by Sparkhouse’s Karina Miller (To the Bone) and Oscar nominee David Lancaster (Whiplash) of Rumble Films. Sparkhouse Media is financing. Cornerstone’s Mark Gooder and Alison Thompson will be talking up the project at the EFM in Berlin next month. The project was first announced in Cannes last year with Sam Claflin attached; he later exited due to a scheduling conflict.

Additional talent lined up for Semper Fi includes cinematographer David Devlin (Monster, Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour), production designer Chris Stull (Machete) and costume designer Christina Flannery (Left Behind). [Source]




The pic stars Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin as avid sailors who set out on a journey across the ocean and encounter one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. Aaron Kandell, Jordan Kandell and David Branson Smith adapted Adrift from the book Red Sky in Mourning: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Survival at Sea by Tami Oldham Ashcraft with Susea McGearhart. Woodley will produce with Kormákur alongside Aaron Kandell and Jordan Kandell.

Currently, there’s nothing scheduled on this weekend, which is in the wake of the Memorial Day frame (which has Disney/Lucasfilm’s Solo: A Star Wars Story). Originally, 20th Century Fox had Deadpool 2 here, which was the same place that Wonder Woman sat last year, but that Marvel pic took a hike to the pre-Memorial Day weekend.

In recent years, studios have booked young female-skewing titles in summer such as Me Before You; Everything, Everything; and Woodley’s The Fault in Our Stars, the latter of which was big for femme YA novel adaptations, opening to $48M during the first weekend of June 2014 and legging out to $124.8M stateside.

Good Deed Entertainment, the company that also acquired Oscar buzzed about ani feature Loving Vincent, has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Journey’s End from London’s Metro International Entertainment. It plans a Spring 2018 theatrical release for the Saul Dibb-directed film which recently premiered at Toronto and played at the London Film Festival.

Journey’s End stars Sam Claflin (Me Before You), Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire), Asa Butterfield (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), Toby Jones, Tom Sturridge (Far From the Madding Crowd) from a screenplay adapted by Simon Reade (Private Peaceful).

Set in the trenches of WWI, the film is based on English WW1 officer R. C. Sherriff’s play and his rediscovered novel co-written with Vernon Bartlett. The story follows 18-year-old new recruit Lieutenant Raleigh (Butterfield) who has pulled strings to join his childhood friend and hero Captain Stanhope (Claflin) on the front line. However, Stanhope is horrified by Raleigh’s arrival into the tension and claustrophobia of the officers’ dugout where they are anticipating a massive German advance. Stanhope has been altered almost beyond recognition by three years of
war, kept going only by the thought that when the war is over he can return to his love – Raleigh’s sister Margaret.

Guy de Beaujeu produced alongside Reade through Fluidity Films. The production is backed by the BFI (with money from UK’s The National Lottery), Fluidity Films, British Film Company, Metro International, Ingenious, The Welsh Government’s Media Investment Budget and Adrian Politowski’s Umedia.

As a play, Journey’s End was first presented at the Apollo Theatre in London, December 1928. The story dramatizes WW1’s actual Spring Offensive, launched by the Germans on March 21, 1918, at St Quentin, France, their last advance of the War.

“We are deeply honoured to be involved in the release of Journey’s End. The film gives a personal voice to the soldiers of WWI and shines a light on their bravery, humanity and humility,” said GDE’s CEO & Founder Scott Donley. “The story might be historical, yet it somehow couldn’t feel more timely.”

GDE’s Kristin Harris and CAA brokered the deal. [Source]




Korean sales company Finecut has announced a raft of pre-sales on 3D animation Red Shoes & The 7 Dwarfs as well as additional casting of Me Before You star Sam Claflin and Patrick Warburton from TV series Family Guy.

Sales deals for the fairytale parody include Italy (Lucky Red), the Baltic states (Acme Film), ex-Yugoslavia and Albania (Blitz Film & Video Distribution), India (MVP), Middle East (Gulf Film), Poland (Kino Swiat), Portugal (Nos Lusomundo) and Turkey (Fabula Medya).

Chloe Grace Moretz was already attached as Snow White, Gina Gershon as Regina (Evil Queen) and Jim Rash as Prince Average.

Clafin is set to play the main role of Merlin, a once arrogant, looks-obsessed prince who gradually realizes the true meaning of beauty, and Warburton will play the role of Magic Mirror.

Directed by Hong Sungho (Egg-Cola, Wonderful Days) who also wrote the original storyline, Red Shoes & The 7 Dwarfs’ head of animation is Jin Kim, whose credits include character designer/character supervisor on Big Hero 6 and character designer on Frozen and Tangled.

Budgeted at $20m, the animation is produced and presented by Seoul-based CGI studio Locus Corporation.

Although Hong says he is trying to show with the animation that true beauty is not limited to appearances, the film’s marketing campaign in Cannes earlier this year drew ire with accusations of body-shaming. Locus eventually apologized and cancelled the campaign.
