Sam Worthington continues to land the bigger roles; which I think means we need to update his photo. The actor has been picked up by DreamWorks Pictures for their take on the literary hero Quatermain.

Sam Worthington for Quatermain

Now that Sam Worthington has some blockbuster experience behind him, the actor has decided to also make his debut as a producer on the project.

For those of you unfamiliar with the character, Allan Quatermain was the hero of “King’s Solomon’s Mines,” a Victorian adventure novel by H. Rider Haggard, and its sequel, “Allan Quatermain.” In the first book, Quatermain leads an expedition into an unexplored region of Africa to find the brother of a friend as well as a fabled treasure of the lost mines.

DreamWorks is switching things up, however, as their 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. The production is currently seeking a director.
