by Christina Garibaldi

Miley Cyrus better watch out because Emma Roberts might be moving in on her man…onscreen, that is. Emma is staring alongside Miley’s fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, in the upcoming action flick, “Empire State,” which is currently filming in New Orleans.

MTV News caught up with Emma at Seventeen magazine’s Pretty Amazing Contest event, where she didn’t want to talk Liam’s engagement, but did reveal that she just might be locking lips with “The Hunger Games” star.

“I do play a waitress, and I play kind of friend, love interest to Liam Hemsworth,” Emma revealed. “It’s based on a true story, and it’s a heist movie, so it’s pretty awesome.”

The film, which also Dwayne Johnson, Nikki Reed and “90210” star Shenae Grimes, is a true story from the ’80s, which follows two childhood friends as they attempt to rob an armored car depository in New York.

And in between filming it seems that Emma is just taking in the sights and sounds of the Big Easy.

“New Orleans, I haven’t been there in years. The last time I was there was actually rebuilding houses after Hurricane Katrina, which was insane,” Emma said. “So to go and experience the city now rebuilt is really awesome and really great, and I think it’s really great we are shooting a lot of movies down there to help them out.”
