Sam Worthington is preparing for another off-world adventure.

Variety reports that the 'Avatar' star will be playing the title role in the film adaptation of 'Dan Dare.' Warner Bros. recently closed a deal for the feature rights to the British property.

'Dan Dare,' created by Frank Hampson, first appeared as a comic in 1950 and centered on a gallant chief pilot of the Interplanet Space Fleet. The story took place in the '90s, with Dare exploring planets presumed to have extraterrestrial life.
