Liam Hemsworth Finds Aurora Rising
As a surfer-turned-fighter pilot

Liam Hemsworth

Thanks to the success of The Hunger Games in particular, Liam Hemsworth has plenty of offers coming in. He’s just taken on the role of a fighter pilot in action adventure pic Aurora Rising.

From the sounds of it, this could be a Top Gun-style role for the Aussie actor, because he’ll be playing a surfer-turned-ace fighter pilot who becomes embroiled in a messy combat mission.

In the aftermath of that opening skirmish, he’s recruited to be part of an elite team testing a new generation of aircraft: planes that will come in handy, since there’s a new international conflict just on the horizon. And yes, we're also having flashbacks to Stealth but we're sure this will be very different.

Relativity Media is backing this one, and has a script in hand from Christian Gudegast, who wrote Vin Diesel thriller A Man Apart. There’s no word on a director yet, but that slot should be filled soon enough.

Hemsworth has already worked with the company on corporate espionage thriller Paranoia, due out in the States on August 16 but still awaiting a UK date. Over here, he’ll next crop up in Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, which arrives on November 22.
