Jackson/Dominic Cooper crime thriller Reasonable Doubts, would be co-starring with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd in their new comedy, Admission, for Focus Features..

"What emerged for me through these dynamic exchanges is the South African film industry is making a strong impression on a global level. This was evident in nearly all the meetings we attended; the Americans made a point of impressing on us their respect for our production services companies, our talented crew pool, our locations, our government film incentives. What excited me most were the possibilities of engaging with North American producers at the creative content level. These exchanges affirmed that co-productions/partnerships with American studios and independents are seriously possible if our stories/screenplays are strong and resonate at a global level. I believe that we are at the cusp of something great and we have to seize this moment to forge partnerships with the global community of filmmakers to usher in an exciting and dynamic phase in our evolving film industry."
