Deadline reports that the Academy Award-winning director has cast Hemsworth - best known for playing superhero Thor - in the big budget blockbuster.
The Disney-Fox-DreamWorks’ actioner is set in the aftermath of a robot uprising, hence the title, and will be released in cinemas worldwide on April 25, 2014.
The news comes after what has been a huge 2012 for Hemsworth who starred in the biggest film of the year so far - The Avengers - and had another box-office smash with Snow White and the Hunstman.
