Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth is set to star in the thriller “Dhaka,” produced by “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018) directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo’s independent production house, AGBO, Deadline reported.
The film will be the directorial debut of stunt coordinator Sam Hargrave, who has worked on several films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film will be released on Netflix.
“Dhaka” will be shot in India and Thailand. The story revolves around Hemsworth’s character rescuing a kidnapped Indian boy held in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. “Physically brave but an emotional coward, the man has to come to terms with his identity and sense of self,” the report notes. The script is by Joe Russo.
In addition to “Dhaka,” the Russo brothers, through AGBO, have acquired the rights to adapting Nico Walker’s recently published autobiographical novel, “Cherry.”
“Cherry,” based on Walker’s life, is the story of an American army medic who is traumatised by the gory reality of war and after returning home, gets hooked to heroin and becomes a bank robber.
The Russo brothers will direct this right the completion of the sequel to “Avengers: Infinity War,” which is set for a 2019 release. The script is by Jessica Goldberg, who is also adapting Mohsin Hamid’s novel “Exit West” for AGBO, set to be directed by Morten Tyldum (“The Imitation Game”).
Hemsworth is currently filming the upcoming “Men in Black” spin-off alongside his “Thor: Ragnarok” co-star Tessa Thompson and can be seen in the upcoming mystery thriller “Bad Times at the El Royale,” which hits theaters October 12.
