David Tennant - Bad Samaritan

David Tennant stars in the movie Bad Samaritan which centres on two young car valets who use their business as a front to burglarize the houses of their unsuspecting patrons. Life is good for the petty thieves until they target the wrong house which changes their lives forever.

David stars as psychopath Cale Erendreich in the movie which was produced by Dean Devlinís Electric Entertainment company. Devlin has directed it himself and Brandon Boyce (Apt Pupil, Wicker Park) penned the screenplay for the thriller.

Robert Sheenan also stars in the movie as Sean Falco and Carlito Olivero plays the role of Derek Hamilton.

The movie was shot from December 2016 in and around the greater Portland, Oregon area. Filming was scheduled from Monday 5th December 2016 until Tuesday 17th January 2017 but it was extended by a few days due to problems with the weather.

SYFYWire has a great interview with Dean Devlin about David Tennant's acting in Bad Samaritan.
Dean says "Some actors have to stay in character all the time, but David's the guy who literally can just hit the switch on and off. So before the take, he's literally the sweetest man you've ever met, helping people carry their props onto the set, pouring coffee for you and chit-chatting being very sweet. And the minute I would say Ďaction,' you could literally see the muscles in his face moving and his eyes clouding over and getting dark and suddenly it was really uncomfortable to be on set. I'd see crew members starting to shift around and feeling uncomfortable." Updated 30/4
