Hemsworth / Singleton

With his brother Chris Hemsworth making great strides after a small but pivotal role in Star Trek led him to the title role in Thor, actor Liam Hemsworth still has some work to do in order to catch up. Taking the romantic lead opposite Miley Cyrus in The Last Song helped his starpower a bit, but if he's going to be a star, he'll have to do much more than make out with an actress/pop star. He's on the right track by starring in Chuck Russell's remake of Arabian Nights, and now he's got another project lined up as The Wrap reports Hemsworth is attached to star in Broken Run, a political thriller which John Singleton (Four Brothers, Shaft) is set to direct.

The story, set in Washington D.C., follows a recovering alcoholic who becomes addicted to the thrill of stalking strangers and discovers that her new obsession is perhaps more dangerous than she originally thought. The project is being shopped around to studios with only a pitch currently, but Jay Longino and Michael Browning are supposed to write the screenplay. It's unclear how soon this project might get off the ground, but Singleton is already done shooting Abduction with Taylor Lautner, so he'll likely figure out his next project soon. Singleton has also been connected to another thriller called Layover and possibly Five Brothers, the sequel to his film Four Brothers. Stay tuned.
