Worthington replaces Cruise in The Tourist

The Australian actor was drafted in after Cruise dropped out to star alongside Cameron Diaz in a new, as-yet-untitled action comedy from James Mangold.

In The Tourist, Worthington will star alongside Charlize Theron as an American holidaymaker used by an Interpol agent to hunt down a crooked ex-lover.

The film, a remake of 2005’s French thriller Anthony Zimmer, will be directed by Bharat Nalluri, according to Variety.com.
