Far more than merely the boyfriend of Miley Cyrus now, Liam Hemsworth has booked his next project.

The Hunger Games star will play a key role in Paranoia, Entertainment Weekly confirms, a thriller from director Robert Luketic (Killers, The Ugly Truth). It will start shooting this summer and may also feature such big names as Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford.

Hemsworth, of course, is also for two Hunger Games sequels, starting with a Gary Ross-less Catching Fire.

He will also appear opposite Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables 2 and portray the lead in Empire State, an action-heist adventure.
