Though Chris Hemsworth was geared up and ready to shoot Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi pic Robopocalypse as his next film, The Beard’s recent decision to postpone that project for a few months left a hole in the actor’s schedule.  It appears that that hole has now been filled, as director Michael Mann has boarded an untitled thriller at Legendary Pictures with Hemsworth attached to star.  Plot details are thin, but the story apparently takes place in the world of cyber threats and attacks.  Hit the jump for more. Per Variety, Mann has been developing the untitled project for over a year, co-writing the script with Morgan Davis Foehl (Mass Effect).  Mann’s last film as a director was 2009’s Public Enemies, and he’s attached himself to a number of projects over the past few years that have yet to come to fruition like Gold and the racing pic Go Like Hell. »
