Worthington

Lots of celebrities like to partake in more than just one form of entertainment media. While most famous movie stars dabble in the art of finely crafted music (Joaqin Phoenix) others take a different route. Sam Worthington was last seen  on the big screen fighting giant scorpions, and according to THR the next place we'll see Worthington is in comic books. What a nerd! Take a look after the jump for more details on Worthington's future comic book career.

Worthington has nabbed a deal with Radical Studios to help create and oversee future imprint projects at Full Clip Productions. The idea for these comics is to have a central focus on adapting each property for the silver screen. Reportedly, Damaged by John and Michael Shwartz will be the first comic to get this treatment. Damaged is about...

"...two brothers committed to justice in different ways -- one inside the law, one violently beyond it.  Now with the end of their careers approaching, they must train their replacements, hoping to remake them in their image. But the vigilante code has changed and the brothers are left unprepared for the true lawlessness and corruption that is about to be unleashed."

Not that amazing if you ask me, but it could become something special in the right hands. To me, the idea of developing comic books for the sole intent of becoming a film seems a little pointless and cheap. However, like anything else in the business of filmmaking, money is paramount.

How does this idea strike you? Is Sam Worthington really the right man for this job? Leave your thoughts below!
