Exciting news! The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Sam has joined the cast of British indie thriller The Corrupted alongside some incredible acting talent including Timothy Spall and Hugh Bonneville.

The Corrupted will see Sam playing an ex-con determined to win back the love and trust of his family. That’s after his future was stolen from him by a crime syndicate run by Clifford Cullen (Spall), who has infiltrated the highest levels of politics, finance and police. Claflin’s character finds himself caught up in a web of conspiracy and corruption centering around a land grab just before the Olympic Games in London.

This contemporary thriller is a perfect vehicle to strengthen his value for international distribution“.
