Chris Hemsworth To Star In I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive
Thor star also stepping behind the camera for quirky country music-based project...
He's best known to thousands of fans as beefcake Nordic superhero Thor, but Chris Hemsworth is set to take on a very different role.
The Aussie star has optioned Steve Earle novel I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive and will be producing it as well as starring in it.
Telling the story of a doctor who is haunted by country music legend Hank Williams after being involved in his mysterious death, The Wrap reports that the film will see Hemsworth playing Toby "Doc" Ebersole.
The fictional tale picks up 10 years after Williams' death, with the doctor funding his morphine habit by carrying out illegal medical procedures in Mexico.
So a bit of a change from the Avengers movies then.
