Worthington talks Green Lantern

Movie News

With Bradley Cooper now rumoured to be the leading contender to don the emerald undies, one would assume previous oft-rumoured “Green Lantern” contender Sam Worthington would no longer be under consideration (if he ever was). But the “Terminator Salvation” star tells Moviehole that he has had contact from Warner Bros about leading their superhero pic, set to lens soon in Australia, and there’s a possibility he may don the tights.

‘’I’ve been talking to (director) Martin Campbell about it’’, Worthington says. ‘’It’s one of those things where they’re still doing the script. I said, “Give me a script. Let me have a look at it.” I like Martin a lot. I met him on the Bond stuff, and I like his work, but the second step is, “Is it a movie that I’d go and see?” ‘’

The ‘Bond Stuff’ Worthington is referring to is, of course, “Casino Royale”. Worthington was short-listed for the role of James Bond, before Daniel Craig.sam

Worthington says he always chooses a project based on who’s directing first-and-foremost.

“I pick because of the director”, the actor, next in Jim Cameron’s “Avatar”, says. ‘’You’re working with them, and my job is to facilitate their vision. The second thing is, “Would I go see the movie?” There’s no point in doing something for four months, or 13 months, that you wouldn’t go and see. That seems ridiculous.’’

Currently, the bricklayer-cum-actor is filming director Louis Letterier’s remake of “Clash of the Titans”.

“We’ve been filming it for two weeks now and I’m more bruised and battered than I was on Terminator”, says Worthington, who joins luminaries such as Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes in the film. ‘’We’ve taken on Medusa, we’ve taken on the witches, and then we just kill everything else. It’s a bit more brutal. There’s no togas, or there’s very little togas. I said, “I’m not wearing a toga. Bugger that!” You can’t look manly in a toga, I’m sorry. I couldn’t do it. Louis is a very good action director, so it’s going to be exciting and big, and my job is to bring the heart.’’
