Production set for next year.

‘Wrath of the Titans’ star Sam Worthington is set to topline a big screen feature adaptation of Tim Winton’s novel ‘The Riders.’

The synopsis for the thriller comes via Moviehole:

“Australian expatriate Scully (Worthington) who prepares to start a new life with his wife Jennifer and young daughter Bille in Ireland. His life is blown apart when he goes to the airport to meet his family, but finds only Billie and no message from his missing wife. With Billie in tow, he travels to Korcula and Paris in search of Jennifer: beginning a journey of self discovery that will alter the course of his life in ways he could never have envisaged.”

The Australian/UK co-production will be directed by Robert Connolly with a screenplay adapted by Michael Hirst, Francesca Brill and Brooks-Smith.

Charles Dance and Timothy Spall are attached to co-star.
