We could not be more excited to see Chris Hemsworth reprise his role as Thor the God of thunder in Alan Taylor's "Thor: The Dark World". The film will reunite us with many other familiar faces and will throw us even deeper into the wonderful world of Asgard. Hemsworth will next be seen in Ron Howard's "Rush" and while promoting the film, he discussed his next project "Cyber", with director Michael Mann ("Heat").
Hemsworth stated, "I just finished it. It's based in the world of cyber terrorism. Basically, something similar to the Chicago Board of Trade is hacked into and it sets off a chain of events around the world, affecting the stock market. And the code that was used to hack into it, my character had written it years before and he happens to be in prison for cyber crime. He is pulled out and offered a deal if he works with a joint task force of the FBI and the Chinese government in trying to track this guy down. It starts off in Chicago and ends up in Kuala Lumpur, in Hong Kong and in Jakarta. It's this sort of cat-and-mouse international heist-thriller."
He then added, "It was fascinating. I knew nothing about that world. It's very prominent now as we see what hacking and cyber terrorism can do, like shutting down power grids in other countries. In our film, he (the villain) shuts down the water pumps to overheat the cooling system in a nuclear power plant and causes a whole lot of chaos. When you do that research, you realize how vulnerable you are."
The film also stars Viola Davis, Hanny Montana, Spencer Garrett, Wei Tang, Archie Kao and Leehom Wang. There is no word on a release date but we'll keep you posted as the story develops.
