After creating a new cult Christmas film with his 2010 debut, Rare Exports: A Christmas Story, the Finnish director should finally be unleashing a follow-up this year with an equally intriguing sounding project featuring an American president played by Samuel Jackson, who must seek help with an adolescent boy in the woods. Helander describes the project as an epic adventure film. Count us in.

Gist: A young teenager camping in the woods helps rescue the President of the United States when Air Force One is shot down near his campsite. br>

Release Date: While Rare Exports premiered at Locarno, Helander’s latest should land a high profile premiere somewhere, perhaps SXSW or a later fall fest.
