Sam Worthington Or Ryan Reynolds To Play Flash Gordon In RemakeFlash Gordon is one of my all time favorite films as a kid I remember watching it on my father's beta. And then as I got older watching it on VHS.
Who doesn't love this movie. Forget about it!
A remake I am not so sure of but the two actors they have in mind could fill the Iconic role that Sam J. Jones made so famous.
Here is some interesting news I found out.
Newcomer Sam Worthington is rising up in the ranks! We hear buzz that he may be starring in a Flash Gordon remake. He currently stars in James Cameron’s Avatar, and has been named as one of the hot breakout stars of the year.
Sources say Sam is up against the sexy Ryan Reynolds for the leading role in the sci-fi flick. “If he gets the role it would be quite a big deal as Flash is an all-American hero,” dished one Hollywood insider. “Right now it’s between Sam, Ryan Reynolds and one or two others for the lead role should the project actually get off the ground.”
The role calls for Flash as a handsome polo player and Yale graduate, who travels to the planet Mongo, where it’s discovered that the meteors are weapons devised by Ming the Merciless, evil ruler of Mongo.
What’s interesting is that the role is an American hero. Sam Worthington is Australian, but we’re sure he’d be happy to perfect his best American accent for a role like this!
And we know Sam has no problem wearing little clothing! Did you see him in Avatar? “I had nothing on,” he said. “I had a loincloth on and they painted me blue, basically”.
