Sam Worthington to Star in Australian Surfing Drama DRIFT

     August 24, 2010


Sam Worthington has added yet another film to his ever-expanding list of projects.  Worthington tells West Australian [via The Playlist] that he plans to return to his native land next fall to shoot the surfing drama Drift.  Worthington, a lifelong surfer, said of the project, “I’m a WA boy at heart and to go back there and put something back into my home town is something I am really looking forward to.  There’s something pure and true about surfing, and there is something pure and true about this script.”  According to West Australian, the film is an “inspired-by-facts story of how surfing evolved from a pastime to a global industry, spawning household names such as Billabong and Rip Curl. Worthington will play a photographer and journalist instrumental in that revolution.”

Here’s everything else Worthington has got on his plate: Clash of the Titans 2 (set to film in the spring), Dracula: Year Zero (set to shoot in the summer), Avatar 2, Dan Dare: Pilot of the Future, The Last Days of American Crime, Man on a Ledge, and Quatermain.
