“The Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth is set to star in “Empire State“, an indie heist movie written by Adam Mazer (“Breach”, HBO’s “You Don’t Know Jack”) while taking on the role of Chris. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is negotiating to play ‘Ransone’.

Formerly titled “The Sentry Keep”, the film is based on the true story of a 1982 NYC armored car company robbery thought at the time to be the largest cash heist in U.S. history.

Set to be directed by Dito Montiel (“Fighting”, “The Son Of No One”), filming is scheduled to begin in April.
