Another actor has been officially casted in Samuel L. Jackson's next film. New comer Callan McAuliffe is set to star alongside Jackson in Kite, about a young girl, Sawa, taken by her father's  partner to train in order to gain revenge against those that murdered both her parents. The film is set to start taping in February in South Africa.

McAuliffe will be taking on the role of Oburi, a twenty-something street smart guy filled with innocence, though his past is anything but positive. His only wish is to save someone's life as a tradeoff, and he chooses Sawa to achieve that goal.

The Australian actor, who was just recently announced as GQ Magazine's Australian "Breakthrough of the Year" isn't new to the big screen either. His other work includes I Am Number Four and playing Young Jay Gatsby in Leonardo DiCaprio's The Great Gatsby set to hit »
