It looks like the Huntsman has his next role lined up after SWATH finishes production. Chris Hemsworth is listed on IMDb as starring in a new film titled 'Rush'.

The film is a biography of one of the greatest rivalries in the sport of Formula 1 racing. Taking place in the 1970s, the story follows Niki Lauda, the Austrian racing legend and his rival, British driver James Hunt. Hemsworth is slated to play James Hunt.

Hunt is described as a privileged, charismatic and handsome English playboy.

The film also stars Daniel Bruhl as Lauda, and is directed by Ron Howard.

The producers from Cross Creek and Exclusive Media Group were just at the Toronto Independent Film Festival trying to get distribution for the film. Nigel Sinclair, Co-Chairman of Exclusive Media Group said this about teaming up with Ron Howard:

"This is one of the greatest stories set in one of the world's greatest sports; add Ron Howard's singular ability to grip you with emotion, drama, and thrill, and we are off to a Grand Prix race."

Principal photography is expected to start in early 2012, with a 2013 theatrical release date.
