‘Lost’ Star Finds Himself Playing ‘Deathgames’

By  · Published on April 21st, 2010

While a ton of people are going to be tuning in to see the “Lost” series finale – including (but not limited to) our very own Lost Club, Daniel Dae Kim will already be working on his next project.

According to Heat Vision Blog, Kim has been cast alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Kellan Lutz (who Neil remembers from the Twilight poster over his bed) for the action flick Deathgames.

It’s got a Most Dangerous Game, Running Man sort of feel – featuring Lutz as a man who is thrust into the world of fighting to the death with the arena full of an online audience. You can guess who plays the asshole who forces people to play.

Speaking of Samuel L. Jackson, every time I type his name, I accidentally type “Samuel L. Hackson.” Is that weird to anyone else?

Tangents aside, it all sounds like a very passable thriller, especially if it can rise above all the problems that Gerard Butler’s Gamer had last year.

What do you think?
