Liam Hemsworth has joined the cast of Australian drama The Dressmaker.

The Hunger Games actor will star alongside Kate Winslet, Isla Fisher and Judy Davis in Jocelyn Moorehouse's romantic drama.

Winslet will play an avenging angel who returns home to the remote country town from which she fled as a child after being accused of murder.

Moorhouse (Proof, How to Make an American Quilt) will direct her own script adaptation of the eponymous novel by Rosalie Ham.

She commented on the cast: "Kate Winslet is perfect for Tilly. She’s beautiful, intelligent, and deeply mysterious on screen. Judy Davis is amongst the great contemporary actresses and she will bring powerful wit and charm to the role of Molly.

"Liam Hemsworth is a laid back, genuine charmer who’s also tall, dark and movie-star handsome. He’ll create a character for the audience to fall in love with.”

The Dressmaker is scheduled to begin shooting in Australia in October.
