Avatar may be finally waning a bit at the box office, but the projects are still rollin' in for the film's actors. Leading man Sam Worthington has been in talks to play Flash Gordon and signed on for a Dracula movie, and now he's got yet another one to throw on the pile. Worthington will star in The Fields, playing a Texan detective who investigates unsolved homicide mysteries with a detective from New York. Let the city boy/country boy jokes and banter commence!
The screenplay is based on a true story and will be directed by Ami Canaan Mann. I'm glad to see Worthington is expanding his range outside of the action and fantasy realm — I just hope he takes a few lessons on mastering that Southern accent first.
