Aussie hunk Sam Worthington (“Avatar,” “Terminator Salvation”) is set to star in an adaptation of “The Last Days of American Crime” reports Mania.
Set in a near future where, 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.
A not particularly successful career criminal intends to steal one of the charging stations, skip the country and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life.
The media however 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.
Rick Remender will adapt his own property, no word as yet on a director.
