Worthington in Madden’s ‘Debt’

Helen Mirren co-stars in thriller remake

Sam Worthington will star with Helen Mirren in “Debt,” the John Madden-directed action film for Miramax.

Worthington and Mirren play Israeli Mossad agents hunting a Nazi war criminal. The film is an English-language remake of the Israeli thriller “Ha-hov.”

The redo is a co-production with Marv Films, the U.K.-based company run by Matthew Vaughn and Kris Thykier. Vaughn wrote the script with Jane Goldman.

Deal comes after Miramax acquired distribution rights to “Last Night,” the Massy Tadjedin-directed drama that Worthington stars in with Keira Knightley, Eva Mendes and Guillaume Canet.

Worthington committed to “Debt” while he is negotiating to play Perseus in “Clash of the Titans,” the Louis Leterrier-directed remake that Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures for a spring start.

The Australian actor is also the star of the James Cameron-directed “Avatar,” which 20th Century Fox releases Dec. 18, 2009, and he stars with Christian Bale in the McG-directed “Terminator Salvation,” which Warner Bros. will release May 22.
