The 28-year-old actor will play the role of a low-level drug runner who is working for a kingpin, played by Vince, in the upcoming movie.

'Arkansas' - which is being directed by Clark Duke - tells the story of a drug deal that goes disastrously wrong.

The movie is being produced by Patrick Hibler, Jeff Rice, Martin Sprock and Storyboard Media.

And the project - which is based on a script penned by Clarke, who also stars in the movie - is set to start filming in 'Alabama'.

Liam recently completed shooting the action-thriller 'Killerman' and is poised to star alongside Rebel Wilson in the comedy movie 'Isn't It Romantic', which is scheduled for release in early 2019.

The actor is part of one of Hollywood's most famous families, with his brothers Chris and Luke Hemsworth also starring in the movie business.

And Liam previously admitted that he and his siblings have always been competitive with each other.

He shared: "We used to fight all the time.

"In the summer holidays we'd live in board shorts and we had a throwing knife, so we'd play this game where you'd have to stand about two metres away from each other and take it in turns to throw it as close to the person's foot and stick it into the ground.

"It was really dangerous. I mean, it was kind of blunt, but it would still hurt a lot if it hit you. We used to play that a lot.

"There were a few cuts and bruises, a few shaves here and there. I think being a young, Australian guy you tend to do those kinds of stupid things."
