Sam Worthington & Charlize Theron: Tourists!

Aussie actor Sam Worthington will replace Tom Cruise and join Charlize Theron in The Tourist, a remake of the 2005 French spy thriller Anthony Zimmer.

According to Variety, The Tourist is about an Interpol agent (Theron) in Europe who manipulates an American tourist (Worthington) in an attempt to flush out an elusive criminal who was her former lover.

Sam, 33, has been in much-demand since starring in the summer blockbuster Terminator Salvation. He next stars in James Cameron‘s Avatar, out in December.

    Hooray! I’ve no idea who Sam Worthington is & haven’t seen any of his films but so glad Charlize (my favourite actress) won’t be in a film with Tom Cruise now!

    Cannot stand Tom Cruise, so good news, hopefully this means the film will turn out good now. :)

  • Nahla

    He’s hot……….and she’s gorgeous!

    Great news. I have been a big fan of Sam Worthington’s since I saw him in TS! He owned that movie and was easily MVP. Happy to see he is getting alot of work.

  • carrie

    my god! soon,this actor will have more project movies than Di Caprio!

  • ********

    I think Sam will make a great character for the movie. Tom Cruise isn’t that great an actor and shouldn’t be put up there with Theron. Wonder why he was replaced?

  • good news

    Me too im glad Tom Cruise is not in it, he doesn’t match with Charlize, she is tall, elegant, glamorous , talented and private, i think his tabloid antics and crasy stuffs will ruin it.

    Now that Crazy Cruise, his aliens and his couch-hopping antics are no longer involved with this project, I’m actually looking forward to it.

  • anniefannie

    Woo Hoo! I’m so glad Crazy Tom Thumb is not doing this movie. I love Charlize and TC would look ridiculous co-starring with her and plus I dont want Charlize to get the TC stink on her. TC stink=$cieno poisoning. Stay clear of Xenu!

  • graceful beauty

    If you can get your hands on it, watch “Getting Square” with Sam in it. He is fabulous, vulnerable yet tough and oh soooo gorgeous!

    well,seems you will be disppointed since Tom never account taking this movie,instead choosing Cameron Diaz as his co-star and will start shoot in Sep or Oct.You haters are so pathetic in believing such a twisted rumour . so ,here is the origianl news
    “Worthington is stepping in for Tom Cruise, who was previously attached to the project. Cruise had been flirting with the remake since last year, before he finally moved on to the untitled James Mangold project at Fox.

  • Seth

    Trust me the deal Charlize had was that Tom Cruise was her co-star, so soon the next news coming out will be Charlize bowing out to do a “certain remake” for big money.
    Special deals most times are tied in with the financing of the movie, and the budget involved. Here’s a hint, look at the Studio heads involved and you will see who is behind the voucher-financing.

  • lala

    of course he is much in demand. he is a hott piece of man!!! :D

  • Helen

    Two hotness on screen! Yesss!!!

  • thank you god


    2 talentless old hag has beens doing action-comedy old hag pizza face with the freak tommy girl trying to boost their slow career..well that crap comedy sound pretty pathetic ,that will certainly not help his low career since whene he didn’t shoot a movie btw?? thank god This oscar winner of charlize theron is not dealing with this Xenu freak , what a good news haliluaaaa.

  • thank you god


    Ummm Theron was in this project way before your tiny xenu freak, who was turning around this project ,she was going to do it with or without him , thank god our prayers come true!!!

  • the truth

    To lanlan and seth aka kissing scientos a**/

    Cruise was dropped from Tourist because he dragged his feet and wanted too many re-writes giving him a larger part and Charlize a smaller part. Spyglass and Studio Canal lost patience with him and hired another actor. Cruise no longer has that kind of clout in this town and every studio exec knows it. That’s just the sad truth. Variety and THR are just being polite and kissing a** as they always do in these situations. Everyone in town knows the truth.

    Also, Wichita was crewing up a couple of months ago (I have friends hired to the project), but recently fired whatever crew had signed on in letter form by saying only that the project was “not moving forward as expected”. I’ve seen copies of that letter.

    she looks good

    I agree with Michele in sayin that “Gettin’ Square” is one worth seeing if not just because of Sam Worthington! I also recommend “somersault” which really shows his sweet, talented, vulnerability as an actor. He’s amazing!
