Chris Hemsworth will star in Dhaka, an action thriller set up at Netflix that will mark the directorial debut of Sam Hargrave, a stunt coordinator who also acts as the stunt double for Captain America actor Chris Evans.
Joe and Anthony Russo, who worked with Hemsworth and Hargrave when they directed Avengers: Infinity War and two Captain America movies, are producing via their AGBO banner.
Written by the Russos, the story tells of a weary mercenary named Rake (Hemsworth) who is hired to save the son of a businessman.
The project is set to begin shooting in November and film until March in locales in India and Indonesia.
Hemsworth and his team at CAA and Fourward recently stepped away from negotiations with Paramount for the actor to star in Star Trek 4, which would have started shooting around March. However, the timing of the Dhaka shoot does leave Hemsworth with a spring opening in case talks resume. (Source)

Speaking to GQ, Hemsworth briefly touched on what didn’t work in Thor: The Dark World, saying the 2013 movie didn’t quite take enough risks and felt a bit too “familiar” as a result.
“The first one is good, the second one is meh,” Hemsworth said. “What masculinity was, the classic archetype—it just all starts to feel very familiar. I was so aware that we were right on the edge.”
Hemsworth previously discussed why he pushed for a major tonal shift with the third film, Thor: Ragnarok. Seeing the slightly poor response The Dark World was receiving, Hemsworth knew a changed was needed and credited Ragnarok director Taika Waititi for successfully bringing about this change.
While appearing on Jimmy Kimmy Live last year, Hemsworth revealed the conversations he had with Waititi about doing something completely different with Thor.
“I remember meeting Taika early in the process and he said, ‘let’s just break everything we know and destroy it and rebuild it,'” Hemsworth said at the time. “And then everyday was about exploring the unknown and trying something different.
“And I got pretty bored as myself as that character and so did he, and maybe a few people out there. So we thought let’s do something different, and every day was improvised and a journey.”
On June 6th, Chris attended the TAG Heuer ‘Museum In Motion’ Australian launch held at Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia. Chris is a global ambassador for the Tag Heuer brand. Head over to the gallery for the latest additions.
