Sam Worthington Channels James Van Der Beek's Southern Accent in the Texas Killing Fields Trailer

Texas Killing Fields stars Sam Worthington and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as a couple of homicide detectives who team up to tackle a series of unsolved murders (I believe it’s loosely based on actual unsolved murders). Jessica Chastain (Tree of Life, The Help) and Chloe Moretz also star, the latter as what look like a potential victim.

The more interesting note about Texas Killing Fields is that it comes from Ami Canaan Mann, who is Michael Mann’s daughter. Mann himself is producing, and I’d be curious to see if directing talent is genetic. The problem, unfortunately, is that the bland Sam Worthington seems to be holding the film back with a Southern accent that can only be described as Van Der Beekian.
