Liam Hemsworth to star in Arabian Nights
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Liam Hemsworth is probably going to be a name we’ll be hearing a lot of in the coming months and years. He’s a virtually unknown right now, but everyone is a flutter over his performance in the upcoming THE LAST SONG with Miley Cyrus. Not content with being the pop superstar’s boy toy, Hemsworth is jumping on the high-concept 3D adventure ARABIAN NIGHTS for director Chuck Russell (THE SCORPION KING). The film is about a young commander that joins forces with Sinbad and Aladdin to rescue a queen. Liam’s older brother is Chris Hemsworth who is currently shooting THOR with Kenneth Branagh.
The concept for the movie seems like it’s going to be tricky to pull off. Any time you combine mythical heroes, it has a tendency to turn out cheesy more often than not. It’s also interesting that Liam is getting so much attention for THE LAST SONG, considering the previews didn’t do much for me.
