Chris Hemsworth Interested in Whale Tale

Deadline reports that Chris Hemsworth is circling the 19th-century-set In the Heart of the Sea, based on the true story that inspired Moby Dick: After a whaling ship was stalked and destroyed by a sperm whale, the surviving fishermen had to resort to cannibalism to survive, drawing lots to determine who'd be dinner. A shame that Hemsworth's brother Liam already starred in the film with a more fitting title: The Hunger Games.
