Sam Worthington to Star as "Quatermain" with a Twist! 


Remember "King Solomon's Mines?" It was originally an 1885 novel by H. Rider Haggard featuring the hero, Allan Quatermain. In the film versions, everyone from Stewart Granger to Richard Chamberlain had the opportunity to star as Quatermain. Now, Sam Worthington is attached to play the literary hero but this time, it's going to have a sci-fi twist.

Worthington will also make his debut as a producer for the DreamWorks project. According to The Hollywood Reporter:

DreamWorks’ version is set in a time in which humans have left Earth and sees Quatermain return to the planet from a sojourn in space, embarking on another “King Solomon’s Mines”-style adventure but on a planetwide scale. Mark Verheiden was the writer behind the first script when the project was revealed early last year.


So, much like his "Avatar" character, Worthington's Quatermain will explore yet again.
