Sam Worthington for Dracula role?
Sam Worthington is in talks to star in a forthcoming adaptation of Dracula.
The English-born Australian actor, who was plucked from relative obscurity by director James Cameron for the 3-D blockbuster Avatar, is set to make Dracula Year Zero, Variety reports.
The film, directed by Alex Proyas, is a tragic love story looking at the origins of the Dracula legend.
Producers want to blend vampire mythology with the true story of Prince Vlad the Impaler.
Sam, 33, who starred in Terminator Salvation, will next be seen on screen in the remake of Clash Of The Titans.
