With Thor expected to have a $60 million debut at the box office this weekend, Chris Hemsworth has quickly become Hollywood’s man of the moment. So, what roles will he be tackling next?
Red Dawn: Hemsworth’s fit physique will come in handy playing Jed Eckert in Dan Bradley’s action-packed remake of the 1984 film (originally starring Patrick Swayze), in which a group of teenagers try to save their town from an invasion of North Korean soldiers (originally Soviets). The film is set to hit theaters sometime this year.
The Cabin in the Woods: The Aussie actor joins Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and Jesse Williams in Drew Goddard’s 3D horror film. Co-written by Joss Whedon and produced by MGM, the film does not yet have a release date.
The Avengers: Hemsworth will reprise his role as Nordic god, Thor, in Marvel’s super-hero mash-up set to hit theaters April 2012. The film also stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Evans (Captain America) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner).
Snow White and the Huntsman: No role has been confirmed, but it is rumored that he’s being considered for the lede male role in the Universal Pictures’ pic starring Kristen Stewart.
