Chris Hemsworth for Steve McQueen biopic?

Chris Hemsworth is set to star in a Steve McQueen biopic.
The 'Snow White and the Huntsman' actor has been linked to the project, entitled 'Triumph AKA 40 Summers Ago', which is being produced by Jerry Weintraub and also stars his little brother, 'The Hunger Games' star Liam Hemsworth.
The movie - which is not to be confused with a Steve McQueen biopic which Chris' 'Avengers Assemble' co-star Jeremy Renner is putting together - is yet to attach a director, but Brandon and Philip Murphy are writing the script which documents McQueen's relationship with his stunt double Bud Elkins, The Film Stage reports.
Chris is also set to star in crime drama 'Candy Store', a movie which has seen the likes of Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Bradley Cooper all linked to the motion picture.
The movie sees a former deep-cover operative turned policeman discover his neighbourhood has been taken over by an international crime group which he was once tasked to wipe out.
Chris is currently filming 'Thor: The Dark World', in which he reprises his role as the titular character after starring as the superhero in 2011 fantasy movie 'Thor'.
