Back in March, we reported that Sam Worthington was signed on to star in the adaptation of the popular British comic-book series Dan Dare: Pilot of the Future. Today, Deadline confirms the story (without giving any credit to Pajiba, who broke the news months ago). For those unfamiliar with the property, Dan Dare has been around since 1950 and is described as a kind of British Buck Rogers. Created by Frank Hampson, Dare is one of the most successful comics in UK history. I wonder if Buck Rogers is as unknown to British audiences as Dan Dare is unknown to us.
