Sam Worthington to play surfer in Drift
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
International star Sam Worthington (AVATAR and CLASH OF THE TITANS) will star in the upcoming film DRIFT. The movie will be a drama set in the surfing world to take place in Australia and will be directed by Morgan O’Neill and Ben Nott who are big talents in the Southern hemisphere. There’s not a lot of information about the film other than it will involve Mr. Worthington, surfing and the directors want to make this the “first character-driven action movie set in the surfing world since Kathryn Bigelow’s POINT BREAK”. The film is being financed by Screen Australia and no date on when production will start has been given.
I know POINT BREAK is a cult favorite, but in all honesty it wasn’t very good and is quite cheesy. With that said, I thought Patrick Swayze was a stud-muffin in that film and although I like Sam Worthington, he’s no Swayze and I just hope they don’t try to make him Swayze-esque. That would not be cool.
