Worthington's Crime

While we continue to await evidence that Aussie actor Sam Worthington is qualified to wear the A-list label, he keeps working on more opportunities to prove it.

The impending blockbuster star (AVATAR, CLASH OF THE TITANS) is now attached to an adaptation of the upcomig Radical Comics series THE LAST DAYS OF AMERICAN CRIME. Worthington would presumably not be playing the character on the cover.

The book comes from prolific comic writer Rick Remender (FEAR AGENT, PUNISHER) and artist Greg Tocchini. The intriguing synopsis: "In the not-too-distant future as a final response to terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans in secret to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts. To keep this from the public, the government creates a distraction, installing a new currency system using digital charge cards.

Enter: Graham Brick. A career criminal never quite able to hit the big score, Graham intends to steal one of the charging stations, skip the country and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life. But the media has leaked news of the anti-crime signal one week before it was to go live...and now Graham and his team have just a few days to turn the crime of the century into the last crime in American history."

Extra Tidbit: Coincidentally, Worthington's replacement in the thriller THE TOURIST, Johnny Depp, is also attached to a Radical adaptation, the Excalibur-in-the-Old-West story CALIBER.
