Usually when you're making a big-budget movie, having actors is one of the main requirements. You know, it helps. But even though "Empire State" is set to begin filming in less than a week, until now half the cast was still up in the air.
Well, better late than never: According to Deadline, "The Twilight Saga"'s Nikki Reed will be joining "Empire State" along with fellow newcomers Chris Diamantopoulos ("The Three Stooges"), Michael Angarano ("Red State," "Haywire"), Jerry Ferrara ("Entourage") and Paul Ben-Victor ("In Plain Sight").
Score one for procrastination.
"Empire State," which is scheduled to arrive in theaters next summer, stars Liam Hemsworth as a wannabe bankrobber who runs straight into the long arm of the law, which in this case happens to be attached to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's immoveable pecs. Emma Roberts is also on board as Hemsworth's potential squeeze.
So just what roles will this slew of new faces be playing? Well, that's still being sorted out at the moment, but chances are one of them will be playing Hemsworth's best friend and robbery partner (Angarano, perhaps?). And Diamantopoulos will play a mob boss who tumbles to Hemsworth's scheme.
As for the rest? Well, don't worry. After all, they still have four days to figure those little details out.
