Sam Worthington to Star in American Crime

Sam Worthington (upcoming Avatar and Clash of the Titans) will star in an adaptation of Radical Publishing’s “The Last Days of American Crime,” reports Mania. Here’s how Radical describes the title:

From critically-acclaimed writer, Rick Remender, comes a fast-paced, futuristic crime story.

In the not-too-distant future as a final response to terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans in secret to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts. To keep this from the public, the government creates a distraction, installing a new currency system using digital charge cards.

Enter: Graham Brick. A career criminal never quite able to hit the big score, Graham intends to steal one of the charging stations, skip the country and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life. But the media has leaked news of the anti-crime signal one week before it was to go live…and now Graham and his team have just a few days to turn the crime of the century into the last crime in American history.

Remender is writing the screenplay for the film.
