Xavier Samuel to star in 'Bait'

Australia's The Herald Sun is reporting that Xavier Samuel ("Riley" in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) has scored a new film role in a 3-D thriller entitled Bait.

"[T]he estimated $20 million thriller . . . is about a tsunami that hits a seaside town, trapping local shoppers and tourists in a flooded underground shopping centre with a pack of hungry sharks," reports The Herald Sun.

Bait will co-star Step Up: 3D star Sharni Vinson, and it will be filmed in Queenland's Gold Coast.
