Russell Crowe and Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games, The Expendables) will star in a new action thriller film project, country of evil.
Crowe is set to play the role of Reaper, “an Air Force drone pilot supporting a Delta Force special operations mission in the southern Philippines.” After the mission goes horribly wrong, he has 48 hours to remedy what has turned into a wild rescue operation. Hemsworth will play the green air traffic controller who is thrust into the middle of a high-stakes extraction where there are no guns and no communication other than the drone above it.”
This sounds like an intense film and it seems like a good project for both actors. The script for the film was written by David Frigerio and Will Eubank (Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin, Underwater), and Eubank will also direct.
Chief Executive of Highland Film Group Ariane Fraser said in a statement: “Working with such talented actors as Russell and Liam is a dream come true. They are both incredible performers who will demonstrate the strong sense of brotherhood between the two main characters.”
Highland Managing Director Delphine Perrier said: “Will and David have written a compelling and compelling story full of suspense and intrigue. With Will at the helm, we are delighted to be working with this uniquely talented filmmaker.”
