Diane Guerrero to Star in Liam Hemsworth’s Thriller ‘Killerman’

“Orange Is the New Black” star Diane Guerrero has been cast opposite Liam Hemsworth in the independent feature film “Killerman” in the role of Hemsworth’s wife.

The thriller is being directed and was written by Malik Bader and is being produced by John and Michael Schwarz, Craig Chapman, Myles Nestel, and Ryan Johnson. “Killerman” also stars Emory Cohen, Zlatko Buric, and Suraj Sharma.

Hemsworth plays a small-time money launderer who is suffering from amnesia after a freak accident during a deal gone wrong. The film is currently shooting in Savannah, Ga.

Hemsworth signed on to the project in May before sales launched at the Cannes Film Festival. Bader directed the 2015 crime thriller “Cash Only,” starring Nickola Shreli as a landlord forced to resort to desperate measures to pay off his debts to banks.

Guerrero is a series regular on the CBS comedy “Superior Donuts” and plays Maritza Ramos on the Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black.” She also starred on the CW’s “Jane the Virgin.” In addition, she authored her memoir “In the Country We Love,” published by Henry Holt, and the soon-to-be-released young adult book “My Family Divided.”

Guerrero is represented by Abrams Artists Agency as well as Josh Taylor at Vamnation and Ryan LeVine at Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein.
