According to Vulture, Sam Worthington has been offered a starring role in This Means War for Fox. The film is being directed by McG.
Worthington and Chris Pine will play best friends and longtime spies who wage black-ops warfare on each other when they both fall for Reese Witherspoon.
This Means War has been around since 1998 and it has had stars like Martin Lawrence all the way to Bradley Cooper attached to it. It has also seen a litany of directors and writers.
However, it is said that Fox really wants to make this film so maybe all the elements have finally fallen in place for it to happen?
Worthington may also be doing the film Man on a Ledge for Summit Entertainment. In that film "he'd play an ex-cop threatening to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop; unbeknownst to the police psychologists brought in to talk him down, the 'suicide attempt' is a cover for the biggest diamond heist ever attempted."
