Sam Worthington heads back to space in “Quatermain”

Hollywoodnews.com: “Avatar” and “Clash of the Titans” leading man Sam Worthington will star in DreamWorks sci-fi film “Quatermain,” a spin on the notable literary hero Allan Quatermain.

Allan Quatermain is the protagonist of H. Rider Haggard’s Victorian adventure novel “King’s Solomon’s Mines” and its follow-up, “Allan Quatermain.” In the first book, Quatermain ventures through unchartered Africa to uncover both treasure and a friend’s missing brother. A 1985 version of “Mines” generated $15 million at the domestic B.O. while its sequel “Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold” fizzled with $3.8 million in 1987.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Quatermain” takes the “Mines” plot and sets it on a futuristic Earth where humans have left.

The film at present has no director attached.

Worthington is enjoying an interesting success attaching himself to franchise films which amp his box office wattage which is currently worth over $3.6 billion from his 3D credits “Avatar” and “Clash of the Titans” as well as 2-D “Terminator Salvation.” His career path is similar to Orlando Bloom’s who buffed his resume up with such major B.O. titles as “Lord of the Rings” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.” However, their box office mettle is tested when they actually have to open a title that’s not associated with a franchise. It’s at these times when they can truly fall on their face, i.e. Bloom with
“Elizabethtown” and “Kingdom of Heaven” which crashed at the domestic box office.

Worthington will face the franchise-less music in Ami Canaan Mann’s thriller “The Fields.”
