Liam Hemsworth (upcoming The Last Song) has been cast in director Chuck Russell’s action-adventure Arabian Nights.

Written by Russell and Barry P. Ambrose, the 3D period epic centers on a young commander (Hemsworth) who, after his king is murdered in a coup, joins forces with Sinbad and Aladdin to rescue Queen Scheherazade.

Inferno Entertainment’s Bill Johnson is producing with Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray of Mayhem Pictures. ROAR also is producing.

Filming is targeted for an end-of-summer start.

Liam’s brother is Chris Hemsworth, who is now shooting Marvel Studios’ Thor.
