Worthington rests in Keeping Room

Sam Worthington

Sam Worthington will join Brit Marling, Hailee Steinfeld and Nicole Beharie to star as a soldier in The Keeping Room.

The 36-year-old actor will join the likes of Brit Marling, Hailee Steinfeld and Nicole Beharie, who had previously been announced to star in the motion picture, according to Deadline.

The story is set in the dying days of the Civil War and Sam portrays “a soldier who has broken off from the fast-approaching Union Army”.

Along the way his character comes across women who have been left to survive by their own means.

Daniel Barber, known for his work on Harry Brown, will direct the project.

The script was written by Julia Hart.

Wind Dancer Films, Gilbert Films and Anonymous Content will finance and produce the movie.

Principal photography is expected to start in June as the cast’s schedules free up.

Sam recently finished up the David Ayer-directed film Ten, along with stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mireille Enos.

The Avatar actor is thought to be involved in a sequel of the 2009 film, which is rumoured to have a release date of 2015.

Aside from his role as Jake Sully in the sci-fi feature, he will play Colonel David Serkins in Thunder Run.

Sam also has Ten out in 2014 in which he plays the character of Monster.
