Is there an upcoming blockbuster Sam Worthington doesn’t hope to star in? The Australian actor, who has yet to prove to audiences that he’s leading man material, just scored the starring role in Warner Bros.’ remake of Clash of the Titans, directed by Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk). Next year could be huge for Worthington, who’ s starring in James Cameron’s 3-D Avatar, set for December 2009 release, after facing off with Christian Bale in McG’s Terminator Salvation next May. For Titans, Worthington will take on the role of Perseus, son of Zeus, who must complete various epic tasks, such as capturing the winged horse Pegasus and slaying the snake-haired Medusa, in order to rescue Princess Andromeda. Production begins in spring 2009.
