The Hollywood Reporter informs us that Cameron, Worthington, “Transformers” producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and writer Will Staples are teaming together to create “Myth,” a project that has no further details beyond the fact that “it’s big, it’s sci-fi, and it’s got lots of action.” Cameron is not expected to direct, and at this point, it’s even unclear that Worthington will star in the film — though one can certainly hope!
Though Worthington’s casting in “Myth” remains unconfirmed, there’s plenty of other new cast additions going on in Hollywood today. Check them all out past the jump!
Fox And Harris Go To ’War’
Two more actors are joining the fight against the zombies in “World War Z,” as Deadline reports that “Lost” actor Matthew Fox and the always amazing Ed Harris are in talks to join the cast.

Will Smith was the first actor mentioned to headline Quentin Tarantino’s slavery-focused Western “Django Unchained,” but Showbiz 411 now hears that Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is the front runner for the part. Furthermore, Showbiz claims that the previously rumored Leonardo DiCaprio is “definitely signed” to play bad guy Calvin Candie. Wait for some official statements before getting those hopes up too high, but it certainly looks promising…
