While he waits for James Cameron to finally get ready to shoot the sequels to Avatar, Sam Worthington has been busy filming up his schedule. Now he’s attached to another movie, The Riders, according to Moviehole.
Based on a novel by Tim Winter, the film is about an ‘Australian expatriate Scully (Worthington) who prepares to start a new life with his wife Jennifer and young daughter Bille in Ireland. His life is blown apart when he goes to the airport to meet his family, but finds only Billie and no message from his missing wife. With Billie in tow, he travels to Korcula and Paris in search of Jennifer: beginning a journey of self discovery that will alter the course of his life in ways he could never have envisaged.’
Timothy Spall and Charles Dance are also set for the movie, which will shoot on the Dalmatian Coast and in Paris, with Robert Connolly directing. The plan is for the film to be ready for release by January 2014.
