A Couple Of New Sam Worthington Pics For You
Just as the post title says, I’ve got a couple of new pics for you from last week. Huge thanks to @elizabethquon and @OCCY85 on Twitter for their permissions to share them with you! xxx
The first (from Elizabeth) is a pic of Sam with her Mum. They met as Sam was on his way to Nola, and the second (from Occy) was taken when Sam visited @theAMChannel in Amsterdam recently.
Again, thank you both for the very kind permission to use your pics! x

Sam Worthington To Possibly Have Role In ‘The Gallipoli Story’
‘The Gallipoli Story’, the four-part mini-series for Foxtel that we told you about back in June 2012, is likely to start filming in mid-2014 and will be aired in 2015, marking the 100th anniversary of the WWI campaign which sought to secure a safe sea route to Russia through this strategically important region of the Ottoman Empire.
The series, which is being produced by Matchbox Pictures and Sam’s Full Clip Productions, follows the story of Australian journalists Keith Murdoch, Charles BeSamsan and Phillip Schuler and Brit Ellis Ashmead Bartlett, who accompanied the troops to Gallipoli in 1915 and reveals how their quest for the truth helped change the war’s course.
Sam is one of the Executive Producers (along with Penny Win, Michael McMahon, Michael Schwarz and Luca Scalisi) and may also play one of the lead roles.
“Sam has been very involved in the development of the project, spending time in the writers’ room, says Jacquelin Perske, one of the writers. She added adding, “It’s very much a passion project for him.”
Perske has said the mini-series will almost certainly be shot in South Australia on similar locations to those featured in Peter Weir’s 1981 film Gallipoli.
Joining Jacquelin Perske in writing the screenplay are Shaun Grant, Cate Shortland and Stuart Beattie. The producers are Penny Chapman, John Schwarz and Perske. The director has yet to been announced yet.
NBCUniversal will distribute internationally.

Sam Worthington Promotes ’365 Days Of Grateful’
Sam was a guest on the ‘Fitzy and Wippa’ show on Nova 96.9 last week to promote a book written by Hailey and Andrew Bartholomew called ’365 Days Of Grateful’.
It is a collection of images and tells the story of Hailey’s journey through depression and into appreciating life.
“I was a bit lost myself and was kind of googling for answers,” Worthington said.
“I came across her website and the book and thought it was such a simple idea that this girl had taken photos every day for a year and found actually that she fell back in love with her life and herself and the world. And I started doing it and contacted Hailey.”
Worthington added: “You think it is the bigger things.”
He begins work on his next movie ‘Kidnapping Freddy Heineken,’ in Europe with Anthony Hopkins soon.
“I go to Brussels and Amsterdam, which I probably won’t remember,” he laughed. “It is about the kidnapping of Freddy Heineken, who was the head of Heineken beer.”
Worthington revealed James Cameron would begin filming Avatar II next October.
“I think Jim is building the ship to Pandora to be honest,” he said, “We are going to start this time next year and we will do two, three and four.’
Then he quipped ‘I’ll be grateful if it finishes!’ which has since caused an internet storm of news flashes about the eagerly awaited Avatar sequels.
