If you’re one of those people who just can’t stand that Sam Worthington is mentioned as a likely lead for every possible film out there, and wish that he’d just pack his bags and go home: good news! He’s packing his bags and going home. For a film. About surfing. Called Drift. In which he, er, will play the lead.

Worthington told the West Australian newspaper (dug up by The Playlist) that he’s headed back to the area to shoot the film, which will track the evolution of surfing from laidback pastime to world-spanning industry sport.

"I'm a WA boy at heart and to go back there and put something back into my home town is something I am really looking forward to," says Worthington. "There's something pure and true about surfing, and there is something pure and true about this script."

The paper says that Morgan O’Neill and Ben Nott will be sharing directing duties on the film, which Worthington is currently planning to squeeze into his schedule early next year, with a focus on a real-life surfing event. Cowabunga, dudes!
