Liam Hemsworth is reportedly close to taking the lead role in Ricardo de Montreuil's new film, "The Raven." The movie is based on de Montreuil's short of the same name, and is being set up at Universal Pictures.

Deadline has the news and said Universal won't confirm their report. Still, Hemsworth is allegedly considering playing the main character in the science fiction film. It's unclear if his character would be the same as the one that is featured in de Montreuil's award-winning 2010 short of it he would play someone different.

"The Raven" is described as a "sci-fi conspiracy thriller, set in the near future." It's clear from the short, which can be watched below, that this future involves robots of some sort and humans with superhuman powers. Michael Gilio and Justin Marks wrote the feature film's script, and production is expected to start in June.
