Home Cinema Thor’s Chris Hemsworth set to make Netflix debut in India-based action-thriller ‘Dhaka’.
Actor Chris Hemsworth is set to make his Netflix debut with an action-thriller film titled Dhaka, according to a statement released by the streaming service on Friday.
The movie, described as a ‘kidnap-extraction drama’, is reportedly set to revolve around the son of a drug dealer from India who gets kidnapped and taken to Dhaka. Hemsworth’s character will be doing the extraction.
“Physically brave but an emotional coward,” is how Hemsworth’s character is being described. “He has to come to terms with his identity and sense of self”, said the statement from Netflix. Hemsworth is best known for his role as Thor, the Norse God of Thunder in multiple Marvel films.
“It’s a complex movie with a lot of political texture in it,” fellow Marvel alumni Joe and Anthony Russo told Empire Magazine. The film is produced by the duo’s new studio, AGBO.
The film is also being directed by another Marvel alumni, Sam Hargrave, who was not only the stunt double for actor Chris Evans’ character, Captain America, but also served as a second-unit director for Avengers: Infinity War and the upcoming, untitled Avengers 4 film. This will be Hargrave’s directorial debut.
The film will be based in India and will be shot in India and Thailand, according to Deadline.com, who first broke the story.
