Who’s gonna end up the biggest of the Hemsworth brothers? Chris overtook Liam’s early lead thanks to Thor, but the younger brother is hitting back this year with the likes of the Hunger Games and The Expendables 2 (while Chris will be saving the world in The Avengers). Now Liam’s got another project he’s hoping will push him up the fame ladder – Empire State.
Deadline reports that Liam Hemsworth is finalising a deal to star in the movie for director Dito Montiel, with Dwayne Johnson in talks for another role as well. Adam Mazer (Breach) wrote the screenplay, based on the true story of a 1982 armored car company robbery in New York City. At the time the heist was believed to be the largest in US history.
Liam Hemsworth will play Chris, and Dwayne Johnson is portraying Ransone, although no further details have been given about their characters. Production is scheduled to begin in April.
