Luke Hemsworth Set For The Reckoning

Luke Hemsworth

To paraphrase Yoda, “There is... another... Hemsworth.” It’s not as if Luke Hemsworth has exactly been hiding – we’ve known there’s a third, older brother in the family besides Chris and Liam for years now. But he’s limited his acting work to TV until the announcement in January that he’s joined World War I drama The 34th Battalion. But since that’s still waiting to kick off shooting, it appears his actual film debut will be crime thriller The Reckoning.

In keeping with the sibling theme, Hemsworth’s co-star in the film will be Jonathan LaPaglia, younger brother to Anthony. The pair is set to play detectives searching for two teenagers who unwittingly shoot footage of a murder and are hunted by the criminals involved.

John V. Soto has written the script and aims to start filming at the end of April in Perth. Hemsworth has a lot of telly credits on his CV to date, having worked on Neighbours, Blue Heelers and Winners & Losers. He’ll likely segue on to The 34th Battalion after finishing The Reckoning. LaPaglia, meanwhile, has appeared in films such as Deconstructing Harry and The Hit List, as well as his own extensive TV career, which includes Cold Case, Underbelly and Seven Days.

Considering this story is mainly about Luke, you could've at least got a picture of him instead of Jonathan LaPaglia!! More
