The Director of the film "the Shack" (USA), as we mentioned above, was the British filmmaker Stuart Hazeldine. Before the filming of "Hut" on account of Stewart was only one job. We are talking about a cult in our country, the Thriller "the Exam". It told an incredibly tense story, the events that occurred during the selection of several employees on a large position in a successful company. Everyone one present wanted to get a coveted job and was willing to go to any lengths to achieve this goal. Movie not had a major box office success both in Europe and in America. However, the feedback was predominantly positive. Many noted the incredibly original script and quality for a debut Director.

However, despite all this, in the Director's chair Stewart Haselden did not return for many years. The reason for that could be a box office bomb, which brought some loss of the Studio engaged in the production of "test". And only now, many years later, the Director once again entrusted the project. This time off he had not in his native Britain and in Hollywood. It is still unclear why the producers fell on Stuart Hazeldine, given its small experience.

Starring Sam Worthington

In the dramatic fantasy "the Shack," Sam Worthington has suddenly received a major role. This actor many are accustomed to seeing all sorts of action movies and blockbusters. But as it turned out in the end, Mack Phillips in his performance was more than convincing.

Sam Worthington-Australian actor, born August 2, 1976. Most of the life this man has lived in Sydney. That's where the future actor of Hollywood has got the appropriate education at the National Institute of dramatic art. It was there that Sam learned all the basics of acting, and as a result was able to break on the big screen. However, the success of the actor also came not immediately. Before fame, for many years Sam Worthington was forced to do minor roles in not the most visible and expensive projects.

The First attempts to get a place in Hollywood for Sam steel auditioned for the role of the new James bond in 2006. But as you know, instead of Worthington was then selected Daniel Craig, who continues to play the role of 007 to this day. But Sam was not discouraged and continued to attend various auditions. And thus, luck has smiled to the Australian. He was seen by James Camerona, who was involved in the development of its new large-scale project "Avatar". In 2009 the film was released on the big screen and produced a real revolution in world cinema. Suddenly Sam Worthington became a world star. Offers poured in one after the other. In the same year he played the title role in the fourth part of the successful blockbuster "Terminator: salvation". Only the feedback he had already rather negative than positive.

A year Later, thanks to its stunning physique, Sam continued to establish themselves as the hero of fantastic thrillers. And this time the Australian was lucky enough to try on the image of Perseus in the film clash of the titans. Among the huge number of militants and thrillers in his career the actor has also observed a much more dramatic role. This primarily refers to the movie "Everest" in which Sam played the role of one of the freight forwarders, who made a famous ascent in the past. The movie was vivid and intense, and could become a hit rolled. However, the full extent of the dramatic ability of the actor is revealed in the "Shack", which will definitely please all fans of his creative activity.

O. Spencer

The Role of God in the film suddenly went quite well-known actress Octavia Spencer. I must admit that many have doubts about the fact that the woman will eventually be able to cope with such a difficult way. But in fact, Spencer even exceeded all possible expectations. Largely thanks to her acting, the film was a solid success. Then we present to your attention a brief biography of the actress.

Octavia Spencer was born on 25 may 1970 in Alabama. There she received the highest education in the Humanities. However, she soon came to the conclusion that he wants to connect his life with film. But the beginning career has developed for Spencer not as successful as many other stars of the present day. The actress ' debut was in 1996 in the court drama "a Time to kill". That's only role was episodic and very few people noted.

For more than a decade Octavia Spencer was forced to do small roles in movies and on television. And only in 2010 it finally came the long-awaited glory. It happened thanks to the dramatic film "the Servant", which became one of the biggest hits of the rental. In the end, Octavia was nominated for several major awards. She even managed to get the "Oscar" for best supporting actor. Hardly an actress before that could even think about such a resounding success that it had fallen.

And, despite more than forty years of age, the actress began to invite all sorts of major Hollywood projects. In particular, you could see her in the films "the Station Frutal", "Through the snow" and the dystopian franchise "Divergent". A second major achievement in her career is rightly considered the recent biographical drama "Hidden figures" which also was nominated for "Oscar" in 2017.

T. McGraw

Tim Macgraw played the role of Willy. In contrast to the aforementioned personalities, he is known not only for its appearance in various films and television series, how much of a music career. For more than 20 years, McGraw is one of the brightest representatives of the country, repeatedly winning top of the charts. Tim no problem collects the whole halls and toured the world with new hits. Many musicians eventually decide to try their hand at the movie. But that's just not for everyone, lack of talent.

However Tim McGraw quite well fit into the overall storyline, adding to it his incredible charisma. Soif you're liking his acting, I advise you to get acquainted not only with his other work in films, and musical albums.
