Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in negotiations while Liam Hemsworth (“The Hunger Games,” “The Expendables 2”) is closing a deal to star in the indie heist thriller “Empire State” at Emmett/Furla Films says Deadline.
The film is based on the true story of a 1982 NYC armored car company robbery thought at the time to be the largest cash heist in U.S. history.
Adam Mazer penned the script while Dito Montiel (“Fighting,” “The Son Of No One”) is directing. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing the film previously titled “The Sentry Keep”. Shooting will begin in April.
