Warner Bros. has decided that they not only forgive Sam Worthington for Clash of the Titans, but they’re reuniting him with Clash producer Basil Iwanyk to star in a “grounded space war” (what?) science-fiction film. Starship Troopers might not be a perfect analog, but it’s the first thing that comes to mind.
Iwanyk’s Thunder Road banner will be handling production, as they have recently on The Town, Seventh Son, and A Star Is Born. They’re kind of all over the place, huh?
The deal that’s been struck is based only on a pitch, and the premise and logline of the movie are being kept quiet, so there aren’t many details to report, other than the fact that Sam Worthington will be returning to space, which is where we found him in Avatar. (Deadline)
