Chris Hemsworth, who has been in the middle of two of the summer’s big films in The Avengers and Snow White and the Huntsman, is in the center of the hot package making the rounds right now, even though it’s not exactly a brand new package. Hemsworth is attached to star in In the Heart of the Sea, which is the disaster tale that inspired Melville’s Moby Dick. Based on the National Book Award-winning book by Nathaniel Philbrick, In The Heart Of The Sea is the fact-based tale of Nantucket whaling ship the Essex, which was stalked and ultimately destroyed by a sperm whale in 1820. Stranded thousands of miles from home, the crew struggled to survive; they were lost at sea for 90 days. Eight were rescued.
