Mann gets his mitts on Thor


Chris Hemsworth will star in an untitled thriller for acclaimed director Michael Mann (“Heat”), reports Variety.

Hemsworth – along with Anne Hathaway – were set to shoot Spielberg’s “Robopocalypse” this year but that’s been pushed back, offering the Aussie actor the opportunity to sign up for something else.

The untitled Mann film, which the filmmaker wrote with Morgan Davis Foehl (”Mass Effect”), is scheduled to kick off in June.

Legendary Pictures, producers of the picture, have yet to release any details on it.

Hemsworth next appears in “Rush”, the Ron Howard picture about race-car drivers, and “Thor : The Dark World”.
