According to Xavier’s IMDB, Xavier is casted to the lead role in “(Midnight in) Byzantium” along with Miranda Otto. Set for release in 2014, the film is written and directed by Cris Jones.
After a road accident on the highway, a young man finds himself trapped in a strange, remote town, where nothing – and no one – is as it seems.
I’ve found another synopsis:
A young man wakes up in a strange rural town with no memory of who he is or how he got there. With the help of the local townsfolk, he attempts to piece together the mystery of his past. But in Byzantium nothing – and no one – is as it seems.

Fusing an all-star cast of some of Australia’s best actors including Sam Worthington, Myles Pollard, Steve Bastoni and Xavier Samuel, with a genuinely gripping story and some of the best surf cinematography seen in a feature film ever, it’s a world away from what you’ve come to expect from Australian cinema in recent years, and couldn’t be better for it.
Catching up with Xavier ahead of the film’s release this week, Hit agrees with the rising star’s assertion that Drift is a genuine triumph of a film, and not just because it’s made here in Australia
“I’m pretty excited about it all, I’m really happy for Morgan (O’Neill) and Ben (Nott), the directors,” Xavier says, fresh from the film’s premiere in Western Australia, where it was filmed.
“It’s a really classy film and it features surf footage unlike anything you’ve seen in a feature film before. Someone was saying the other day that the waves in the film are the biggest and most spectacular ever in a dramatic feature film.”
