Sam Worthington has to spend much of his life trying to slot in as many movies as he can while waiting for James Cameron to finally say he’s ready to shoot Avatar 2 & 3. It seems he thinks he’s got some time until that happens yet, as he’s signed up for the American Civil War drama, The Keeping Room, according to Deadline.
Brit Marling, Hailee Steinfeld and Nicole Beharie will also star.
The site says the film is, ‘Set in the dying days of the Civil War, Worthington plays a soldier who has broken off from the fast-approaching Union Army and encounters women who have been left to fend for themselves.’ There’s no info on what he does when he finds those women, though.
Harry Brown helmer Daniel Barber will direct, working from a script by Julia Hart. Shooting is due to kick off in June,
