It wasn’t going to be long before one of the bright stars of The Hunger Games was picked up for another movie. Today we have learned that Liam Hemsworth has been tapped to star in the new spy thriller, Paranoia, based on the Joseph Finder novel. The new film is meant to star two other big names, Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman, who are also in negotiations for various roles. Would you want to see Liam in an espionage thriller?
We don’t have much info yet about the new movie, but we do know that it is going to be directed by a relative newbie, or not so much a newbie as a non A-list director (and I mean that in the nicest possible way.) Robert Luketic is going to be directing Paranoia, and he is known for his work on Legally Blonde, a few duds such as Monster-in-Law, Win A Date With Tad Hamilton! and Killers. Still, this project seems like a big one, and they are definitely aiming high with casting. It will be interesting to see if Liam, Harrison or Gary actually sign on, but Deadline is reporting that negotiations are already in the serious stage, so we could very well be seeing the gorgeous Liam in a new movie, with some older veteran actors, for him to learn from. Gary Oldman has had pretty big success from his work in the Harry Potter movies and he stars in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises.
I would love to see Liam in something new again. I think he is just gorgeous and super talented and I assumed that he would be approached for new movies right on the back of The Hunger Games. I worry a bit that this mightn’t be the one for him to move onto following the mammoth success of his last role. Having said that though, if Harrison Ford or Gary Oldman were to sign on to this project then this could be a great opportunity for Liam, so… I guess we will have to wait and see. Do you want to see Liam in this new movie?
