"I've read a lot of crime dramas that are just bad. Real bad," Ferrara laughed. "But when I read this script, I just had to be in this movie. I love movies that are loosely based on the truth and could relate to the culture. I didn't necessarily participate in any heists, but I could relate to the idea of needing to take what you want."
Empire State tells the story of Chris Potamitis (Liam Hemsworth), who settles for a security guard job with the Empire State Armored Truck Company after failing to get into the police academy. He then makes the mistake of mentioning the company's lax security to his best friend, Eddie (Michael Angarano), and is soon unwittingly drawn into an elaborate scheme to rob the abundant amounts of cash being stored there - resulting in the largest cash heist in U.S. history.
