Watch: This Freaky Sci-fi Short Just Nabbed Liam Hemsworth to Star in the Feature Version

Apr 03, 2013

Liam HemsworthBack in 2010, Ricardo de Montreuil released a short film titled The Raven (not to be confused with the John Cusack Edgar Allan Poe film of the same name --p lease make your own "nevermore!" joke here) that generated a ton of buzz on the Internet. Now we’ve learned which big-name young actor could be playing the lead role in the feature version due sometime in the not-too-distant future.

Deadline reports that Liam Hemsworth is close to agreeing to play the title role in the big-budget update. Hemsworth is hot off parts in The Hunger Games and Expendables 2 and should fit quite nicely into this sci-fi conspiracy thriller. Based on the short, we’re assuming Hemsworth will play a character on the run who also happens to have some pretty amazing telekinetic powers.

Check out the trailer for The Raven below. Shooting is slated to start this June – so we suspect we’ll know whether or not Hemsworth is officially on board sooner rather than later.
