Bloody Disgusting has learned exclusively that Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Losers, Red Dawn, The Resident, Watchmen) will star alongside Sam Worthington in the murder mystery Texas Killing Fields, with Michael Mann producing through his Forward Pass shingle along with Michael Jaffe. Mann’s daughter, Ami Canaan Mann, will direct from Donald F. Ferrarone’s script. The story focuses on the true story of a pair of police officers who undertook to solve two decades of disappearances and homicides — totalling as many as 60 victims — in the industrial wastelands surrounding Gulf Coast refineries. It was previously reported that Worthington will portray a local homicide detective who works with a New York transplant to wage a war against the unknown but fierce killers. Lensing will start in April in Louisiana.
