Worthington picked as ‘Candidate’

Summit producing remake of Danish thriller

Sam Worthington will star in Summit Entertainment’s remake of Danish thriller “The Candidate,” with Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen producing through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner.

Beau Willimon will pen the adaptation, which follows an aspiring lawyer who wakes up in a hotel room with scant memories of the woman he met the night before, only to discover she’s dead in the bathroom — and he’s about to be blackmailed for her murder.

Peter Bose and Jonas Allen of Miso Film will exec produce.

Project reteams Temple Hill with Summit following the breakout success of “Twilight.”

Worthington most recently starred in “Terminator Salvation.” Willimon wrote “Farragut North,” which had its West Coast premiere recently at the Geffen Playhouse.

Worthington and Willimon are repped by CAA.
