Liam Hemsworth is everywhere these days. The younger brother of Thor’s Christopher Hemsworth is carving out his own Hollywood niche, with appearances in The Expendables 2, The Hunger Games, and Empire State looming the near future. Not content to rest on his laurels, the young actor has now landed another starring gig – this time appearing in Phillip Noyce’s Timeless.
Hemsworth will headline the love story, which focuses on a man who tries to cope with losing his wife. He then spends his inheritance building a time machine so he can travel back to have one last visit with the woman he loves. The script comes courtesy of Enchanted scribe Bill Kelly.
Timeless had been kicking around town for awhile before Noyce came aboard. At one point, Robert Zemeckis was linked to the project, but Noyce has been the head since late 2010. That he’s just now casting a lead in early 2012 should give you an idea just how long this film has been in development.
We’ll bring you more on Timeless as the film moves closer to shooting.
