Worthington & Cameron May Produce Big Sci-Fi Project 'Myth' at Fox
Ohh I love hearing about more sci-fi! THR is reporting on a new sci-fi project in the works at 20th Century Fox called Myth. The project is developing with actor Sam Worthington and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers, G.I. Joe, Salt franchises) producing, and James Cameron executive producing. Sadly, this is where details get thin. "Nothing is known about Myth other than it's big, it's sci-fi, and it's got lots of action." And unfortunately, "Cameron would not direct, and at this stage, Worthington is not attached to star." However, what we do know is that Will Staples is writing a pitch. So it's just barely in the early stages.
We're not sure what this is all about, but they've got some big names on-board. THR hints that screenwriter Will Staples' previous work in video games like Call of Duty might hint at what we could expect. I'd love to see another kinetic action epic sci-fi movie of some sorts, whether it be set in space or on Earth, but as long as it's an original idea with a good story and a strong world behind it. Let's hope that's what they're building, but we'll have to wait for more details. This may or may not have anything to do with another sci-fi project Sam Worthington was attached to last week, a "grounded space war film." We'll let you know what we hear.
