Sam Worthington goes back to the future

Avatar's Sam Worthington is clearly not done with science fiction - he's attached to star in near-future tale The Last Days Of American Crime.

The Minority Report-esque plot focuses on the US government's plan to covertly broadcast a signal that would make it impossible for anyone to commit a crime.

It's been adapted from Rick Remender's comic book, which is ready to hit the shops as a miniseries next month.

There's no word on who might direct the movie yet, but if Duncan Jones wasn't already busy on Source Code and trying to get Mute made, he'd have our vote. Or maybe they could convince Neill Blomkamp to sign on?
