Sam Worthington could be ‘Flash Gordon’

Well now the word is that Sam Worthington is being considered to star in the sci-fi comic book film as Steven ‘Flash’ Gordon. “If he gets the role it would be quite a big deal as Flash is an all-American hero,” said an insider.

Back in April, Eisner said the following about the project: “The thing about ‘Flash’ is, you’ve got to throw away the 80s version of it. For me it’s about reinventing ‘Flash’ – we’re still staying true to the adventure origins of it, and the adventurous spirit in that movie, absolutely. It’s this man brought to another planet and uniting the disparate groups on Mongo, but there is a gritty, intense, dynamic, active quality to the movie. Very modern. It’s not campy.

Eisner’s next project was supposed to be the remake of ‘The Creature From the Black Lagoon,’ but he droped out, so at this point, ‘Flash Gordon’ looks like could be his next film.
