Hemsworth will soon reprise the role of Gale in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." He stars opposite Amber Heard in the corporate espionage thriller "Paranoia," which Relativity will release on August 16. He's repped by WME, ROAR and Morris and Yorn.

Gudegast, who is also writing and directing Relativity's bank heist drama "Den of Thieves," is repped by WME and Management 360.
