Sam Worthington Sorts Out Those Flash Gordon Rumors

Excited about the prospect of seeing Avatar's Sam Worthington take on Ming The Merciless in a new cinematic take on Flash Gordon, as recently rumored? Don't be: Worthington himself seems to know nothing about it.

Ain't It Cool News asked the Terminator Salvation and Clash of The Titans star about the rumors, and he replied via email,

[T]here is no validity to the rumours... [S]ometimes, as you know, studios tend to just scat ideas and they leak out - but its the first i have heard about it mate.

Good. Not that we aren't Worthington fans, or wouldn't like to see a (well done) Flash Gordon movie, but still: After Terminator, Avatar and Titans, it'd be nice to see someone else get a shot at heroic roles for a bit.
