Sam Worthington turns producer for sci-fi epic

London: ‘Avatar’ Star Sam Worthington has decided to produce an upcoming sci-fi film ‘Quatermain’.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Aussie actor is all set to act and produce a re-imagining of H Rider Haggard`s Victorian adventurer Allan Quatermain.

It was made famous in the hit novel King Solomon`s Mines, reports the Daily Express.

Unlike Quatermain novels` original setting in Africa, Worthington`s edition will see the protagonist return to Earth after a space trip-only to find there are no humans left on the planet.
