Sam Worthington is heading back to the future again.

The “Avatar” star, who recently toplined “Terminator Salvation,” is attached to star in yet another sci-fier: “The Last Days of American Crime.”

Set in the not-too-distant future, story involves the U.S. government’s plans to secretly broadcast a signal that makes it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts.

Based on Rick Remender’s comicbook of the same name, “Last Days of American Crime” will hit shelves next month as a bi-monthly, three-issue miniseries. Greg Tocchini illustrates.

Barry Levine, who heads up the comicbook’s publisher Radical Publishing, is producing alongside Michael Schwarz.

Worthington is currently shooting the John Madden-helmed remake of “The Debt” opposite Helen Mirren. The thesp, who toplines Warner Bros.’s epic “Clash of the Titans,” recently dropped out of the GK Films thriller “The Tourist” — in which he would have starred opposite Angelina Jolie — over creative differences. Johnny Depp is now aboard to star.

Worthington is repped by CAA.
