Captain Nemo. The Phantom. Captain America. And now, Flash Gordon.
Which pulp icon hasnâ€™t Aussie it-boy Sam Worthington been rumoured for!? (Tarzanâ€™s surely just around the corner).
According to Hollyscoop, the â€œAvatarâ€ star is the front-runner to play the polo-player cum spaceman in director Breck Eisnerâ€™s big-screen â€œFlash Gordonâ€ redo (youâ€™ll recall SamJ. Jones played the stargazing Quarterback – they changed his sport of choice for cinematic reasons – in the 1980 version). According to an â€˜insiderâ€™ (heh), Ryan Reynolds is also being eyeballed by producers- and for the role, too (sorry!).
For those not old enough to remember the comic or previous flick (and for those that were spared a viewing of the ill-fated Sci-Fi Channel series a couple of years back; bloody glad my producing partner didn’t end up getting the gig), â€œFlashâ€ is a handsome sportsman and Yale graduate, who travels to the planet Mongo, where itâ€™s discovered that the meteors are weapons devised by Ming the Merciless, evil ruler of Mongo.
Considering Eisnerâ€™s about to start work on a remake of â€œThe Broodâ€, not to mention the fact that this â€œFlash Gordonâ€ movie has been in development longer than Melbourneâ€™s M1 upgrade, I think itâ€™s safe to say the Worthington rumour will likely stay just that. But if there is some truth to it, Jesus! … Worthington better enroll in an American accent class quick! The critics will eat him alive if he brings his Australican accent to the role of an â€˜all-Americanâ€™ hero.
