The 'Thor' actor is also set to star in Stephen Gaghan's high-end thriller 'Candy Stores', which draws interests from a number of A-listers such as Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington and more.

One of Hollywood's hottest siblings, Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth, might end up sharing screens together in one movie. According to The Film Stage, Chris is eyed to star in a Steve McQueen biopic called "Triumph AKA 40 Summers Ago", in which his little brother is attached to star.

It's unclear what role the Australian brother duo will tackle in the biopic about the late "Sand Pebbles" actor. The project still hasn't found its helmer, but Brandon and Philip Murphy are set to pen the script, which revolves around Steve McQueen's relationship with his stunt double Bud Elkins.

A rival McQueen biopic is also developed with Chris' "The Avengers" co-star, Jeremy Renner, taking the lead role. The untitled Steve McQueen Biopic has Ivan Zacharias serving as the director and James Gray penning the script.

"Triumph AKA 40 Summers Ago" won't likely be the only new upcoming project for Chris Hemworth. The "Thor" star, who's recently turned down the offer to star in "American Assassin", has been tapped to join Stephen Gaghan's high-end crime thriller project "Candy Store".

The project has attracted the interests of a number of A-listers, including Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz. The likes of Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Bradley Cooper are reportedly also circling the thriller.

"Candy Store" follows an elite, deep-cover operative who loses everything, ultimately disappearing into Brooklyn, where he must start again. He winds up as a beat up cop, only to discover the global organization he was dedicated to fighting is operating in his new backyard. No start date has been set for the project.
