Liam Hemsworth’s ‘Cut Bank’ Starts Shooting

Malkovich, Thornton, Palmer also starring

Liam Hemsworth of “The Hunger Games” has replaced Armie Hammer in the lead of Matt Shakman’s “Cut Bank,” which has started shooting in the Canadian city of Edmonton — which is helping to finance the project.

Hemsworth portrays an athlete turned auto mechanic, who dreams of getting out of Cut Bank, Montana. Hammer had been attached to play the role when the project was announced last year.

John Malkovich, Billy Bob Thornton, Teresa Palmer, Bruce Dern and Michael Stuhlbarg are also in the cast. Ben Kingsley and Michael Sheen were in the original cast when the project was announced last year.

Shakman, whose TV credits include “Mad Men,” is making his feature helming debut from Robert Patino’s script, which was on the 2009 Black List.

“Cut Bank” is produced by Laura Rister, Edward Zwick, Dan Cohen and Mickey Barold. Kilburn Media is financing along with the Edmonton Economic Development Corp. Kilburn’s Mark Manuel and Ted O’Neal are overseeing production for the financiers.

WME and Untitled Entertainment are co-representing domestic rights. Canada’s eOne will distribute Cut Bank in that country and represents the film for international sales.
