Chris Hemsworth and Jeff Bridges are in negotiations to star in the Fox thriller Bad Times at the El Royale, with Drew Goddard directing from his own script.
Should the deals close, the actors would be the first attached to the project, which is expected to begin shooting early next year. Fox has kept details about “Bad Times” under wraps other than it being set in the 196os at a dilapidated hotel in California’s Lake Tahoe region. Bridges would play a down-on-his-luck priest.
Goddard is also set to produce the movie. He received an Academy Award nomination last year for best adapted screenplay for The Martian, which was adapted from the Andy Weir novel. (Source)
