Liam Hemsworth, the brother of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), is making moves. He is close to snagging the lead role in "The Raven", based on Ricardo de Montreuil’s short film.
The short is a sci-fi conspiracy thriller, revolving around a young man named Chris Black. Chris possesses such strong powers, that he could take down the regime in a futuristic America. He is then chased through the streets of Los Angeles by robo-drone like creatures and a huge police ship.
Hemsworth was recently seen as Gale in "The Hunger Games", and he will have a much larger presence as that character as the films progress. He was also seen in "Expendables 2" but "The Raven" would mark his first starring role to date.
Michael Gilio and Justin Marks have adapted de Montreuil’s short for the big-screen. Mark Wahlberg is attached as a producer and it's likely we will see him pop up as a star in the film as well but nothing has been confirmed yet.
