Filming ‘Adrift’ in Fiji

unnamed (21)

As we mentioned in Sam’s birthday post – he managed to miss his entire birthday as he was on his way out to Fiji to begin filming on Adrift opposite Shailene Woodley. If you haven’t heard about this one, then check out the synopsis below thanks to Variety:

“Adrift” is written and produced by Aaron and Jordan Kandell. Baltasar Kormákur will direct and produce the film under his RVK Studios banner, with production set to begin in June.

Woodley signed on to star in “Adrift” during the Berlin Film Festival, where STX began selling rights.

“Adrift” is based on the true story of Tami Oldham, who, after being knocked unconscious by the largest hurricane in the history of the Pacific Ocean, awakens to find her fiancé Richard Sharp badly injured, their boat in ruins, and no means of communication or navigation. She must race against the clock to save herself and the only man she’s ever loved.

The premise of the film sounds really interesting & we can’t wait to hear more about it as filming progresses! Meanwhile Sam has taken to Instagram whilst over in Fiji to show us the beauty of the South Pacific country where he is currently staying and the warm welcome he got when he first arrived.

Happy 31st Birthday Sam!

Happy happy birthday to our fave guy! Today is his 31st birthday! And he managed to miss the full thing! No joke – as he was due to fly from the US where he was currently, over to Fiji where he was about to start filming Adrift opposite Shailene Woodley, and due to the time zones, he managed to miss the 27th completely! Whoops! As always, we sent him our birthday wishes as soon as the clock struck Midnight on the 27th June :) Thank you to everyone who took part as always! If you haven’t seen the video, you can catch it below!

Sam saw the video a little later on (after arriving in Fiji) & sent this lovely message (below) in thanks. Once again, thank you to everyone who took part – you can see how much this means to him :) And huge thanks, as always, to our video editor @jonnyhadapigeon for doing a marvelous job as always!

On June 18th Sam attended the global premiere of Transformers – The Last Knight in support of his beautiful wife Laura Haddock who plays Vivian Wembley in the 5th installment of the action movie franchise. Our fave guy was every inch the proud husband as he posed for photos with Laura on the blue carpet in Leicester Square. Laura stunned in a gorgeous pale pink dress & Sam looked dapper as usual in a sharp black suit & tie. Aside from posing for some adorable photos alongside Laura, Sam also found the time to make friends with Freya the dog (who has a starring role in the film!) on the red carpet! Check out the stunning photos below :) Transformers – The Last Knight is out in cinemas from June 21st!

New role for Sam: Semper Fi

sam-claflin (1)

 

Brilliant news! Sam has been cast in another great film called Semper Fi a crime-thriller by director Henry-Alex Rubin.

Variety had the following to say about Sam’s upcoming role:

“Claflin will play a straight-laced cop who fills his downtime as a sergeant in the Marine Corps Reserve alongside a close-knit team of lifelong friends. When his younger, reckless brother accidentally kills a man in a bar-room brawl and tries to flee town, Claflin’s character  stops him and forces him to face the music.

After being deployed to Iraq, he returns home to discover that his brother’s final court appeal has been rejected and resolves to save his brother by breaking him out of prison, no matter what the cost”

Production for  Semper Fi will start in Vancouver, Canada on July 5th. Doesn’t it sound fantastic? Yet another completely different role for Sam – we can’t wait!

For updates on filming keep an eye out on here and across our social media :)
