Sam Worthington will return to his hometown of Perth, Australia to star as the lead in the $11 million surfing drama “Drift” reports The West Australian.
The inspired-by-facts story follows how surfing evolved from a pastime to a global industry. Worthington will play a photographer and journalist instrumental in that revolution.
Shooting will take place around Easter next year to take advantage of Western Australia’s big waves, moodier skies and the Margaret River Pro surfing event held around that time.
Tim Duffy and Myles Pollard will produce while Morgan O’Neill will direct.
