A number of other actors have come up in association with the project, including Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz.

In addition writing and directing "Candy Store," Gaghan, who won an Oscar for "Traffic," is producing with Alli Shearmur.

Hemsworth is also being eyed for a role in “Triumph AKA 40 Summers Ago,” the Steve McQueen biopic that is set up at Sony with Jerry Weintraub producing. Hemsworth’s younger brother, Liam, has also has an offer for "Triumph," which follows the true story of McQueen and his relationship to his stunt double, Bud Elkins. Brandon and Philip Murphy are writing the script.

Chris Hemsworth recently declined an offer to co-star in “American Assassin” with Bruce Willis. His credits include "The Avengers," “Thor” and “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Liam Hemsworth’s credits include “The Hunger Games” and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” Gaghan’s credits include “Traffic” and “Syriana.”

Sounds ok to me but Candy store starring Chris Hemworth lol.
 
Sounds pretty cool. I don't get the title, though.
 
When I saw the title, the first thing that popped into my mind was that this would be a sequel to "Candy," in which Hemsworth reprises Heath Ledger's role and gives up heroin for 'roids.
 
Hemsworth is meh. :o
 
Is Pitt still in, or is Hemsworth won the role over him?
 
The plot sounds a little similar to Jason Statham movie safe.
 
The plot sounds interesting and Hemsworth is cool.

Sounds like Jason Statham's new movie (Hummingbird?).

But could be a cool action thriller. I'd probably see it.
