Liam Hemsworth has reportedly clinched the lead in Phillip Noyce's new movie Timeless.
The Aussie actor - who is dating former Disney star Miley Cyrus - will play a man who tries to invent a time travel machine to transport him to the past so he can see his late wife, reports Moviehole.net.
The casting is another sign that the 22-year-old's star is on the rise.
Liam, who is the younger brother of actors Chris and Luke Hemsworth, didn't start his movie career until 2009 but has already bagged showy roles in several upcoming big movies including The Hunger Games and The Expendables 2.
He is also due to shoot indie heist movie Empire State.
