Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans) will star in Drift, reports Variety.
The film, financed by Screen Australia, is a drama set in the surfing world.
“‘Drift’ combines serious Australian talent both in front of and behind the camera with [co-helmers] Morgan O’Neill and Ben Nott, together with Sam Worthington who has been in some of the highest grossing international films of the last few years,” said acting Screen Australia’s Fiona Cameron.
She added that “The unique combination of surfing and performance expertise gives ‘Drift’ the potential to be the first character-driven action movie set in the surfing world since Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Point Break.'”
