The film, which has Bruce Willis in talks to star as well, is centered on Mitch Rapp, a recent grad student who after losing his fiancee in the terrorist bombing of Pan Am flight 103, joins the CIA in order to exact revenge on the terrorists who committed the act. If he takes the offer, Hemsworth would play Rapp with Willis playing his CIA mentor.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Nick Wechsler, Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick will produce.
Hemsworth has turned himself into a serious A-lister with roles in “Thor”, “Cabin in the Woods”, “The Avengers” and “Snow White and the Huntsman”. He will next be seen in the action remake “Red Dawn” and is in production on the “Thor” sequel, “The Dark World”.
Hemsworth is repped by Mark Morrissey & Associates.
