Liam Hemsworth In Talks to Star in THE RAVEN

     April 3, 2013


While the studio has yet to confirm the news, Deadline is reporting that Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) will star in the sci-fi thriller The Raven.  The film is based on the award-winning 2010 short directed and co-written by Ricardo de Montreuil (Máncora, La Mujer de mi Hermano), who will also be at the helm of the Universal Pictures project.  The feature-length film, only described as a sci-fi conspiracy thriller set in the future, will be produced by Stephen Levinson (Entourage) and Mark Wahlberg.  A trailer for the short shows a futuristic world very reminiscent of The Fifth Elementwithout all the glam and lights of city – in which a man is wanted for his supernatural abilities.

This would be the perfect opportunity for Hemsworth to depart from his romance-movie roles and show off more of his action chops and stand-alone power.  His latest project, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, recently wrapped production in March and is set to hit theaters November 22nd. He has a total of four films slated for release this year, including the thriller Paranoia co-starring Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford.  For a look at the trailer for the The Raven short film, hit the jump.
