Liam Hemsworth Signs On to Star in Philip Noyce's 'Timeless'

Liam HemsworthSure, his older brother might get to take on space missions, superhero assemblages, haunted cabins and classic fairy tales...but there's one thing Liam Hemsworth is getting to do that Chris hasn't: time travel. The younger of the Hemsworths has signed on for Timeless, a science-fiction drama film being developed by Salt and The Bone Collector director Philip Noyce.

Hemsworth is officially attached to take Timeless' lead: a man who loses his wife and inherits her vast fortune. Unable to get over the loss, the man will spend his time and money researching and developing a time machine so that he can travel back to when his wife was alive. It's actually a fascinating and grounded twist on a science-fiction staple of time traveling, and sounds to be a pretty interesting human story. The script comes from Bill Kelly, who wrote the films Enchanted, Premonition, and Blast from the Past—a movie that I have absolutely no idea why I love so much.

This coming year is proving to be a fruitful one for Liam Hemsworth: he'll also be appearing in the young adult fiction frenzy The Hunger Games come March and the action typhoon The Expendables 2 in August.
