“Thor” star Chris Hemsworth is trying out a new role - an indie film producer. The “Avengers” star has reportedly acquired the film rights to a Steve Earle novel called “I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive”. Hemsworth will produce and star in the movie, with screenwriter Benjamin Grayson (who worked as Kenneth Branagh’s assistant on “Thor”) doing directing duties for the first time.
The fictional book is a dark story about a doctor who is haunted by the ghost of the late country star Hank Williams. He loses his medical license and later becomes hooked on morphine, performing illegal operations to fund his habit.
Chris Hemsworth has a pretty full slate right now, he’s just finished working on Michael Mann’s “Blackhat”, and soon we’ll see him in Ron Howard’s “Heart of the Sea”, the comedy reboot “Vacation”, the spin-off “The Huntsman”, as well as, of course, a small movie called “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.
