As stated earlier this year is marvel’s year. Sam way this year is Chris Hemsworth’s year. The Australian actor is not only getting his fourth movie (Thor: Love and Thunder) in the MCU but also another American movie. That’s right! Chris Hemsworth will be starring in the upcoming movie Spiderhead
What is Spiderhaed about?
Spiderhaed is an upcoming American science fiction thriller film. The movie stars Chris Hemsworth, Miles Teller, and Jurnee Smollett. The movie is based on a dystopian short story “Escape from Spiderhead” by George Saunders.
The film is set in a state-of-the-art penitentiary, run by brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth). The inmates wear a badge or collar that checks the mind-altering dosages. Moreover, this will help the inmates to reduce their sentences. This process isn’t as simple as it sounds and involves many risks. Jeff (Miles Teller) plays the role of one of the inmates who is helping Rachel (Jurnee Smollett) to overcome the experiments in the prison.
In the movie, we see Chris Hemsworth in a totally different role. Hemsworth who plays the hero or ‘the strongest avenger’ in MCU‘s Thor, plays a different role in the upcoming film. Although the theatres are open, Netflix will release the movie on their platform on the 17th of June 2022.
Filming for Spiderhead…
The principle photography of the film started in early November 2020 in Australia. The main motive behind this was that production will open up 360 local jobs and will increase the economy. Locations for filming included the Gold Coast, Darlington, as well as a popular tourist destination the Whitsundays. Producer Tommy Harper said that these were the perfect locations.
“The great thing about this area is you can be on the beach, you can do waterwork, you can be in the desert, you could be in the country and feel like you’re in Texas you can be in a rainforest and feel like you’re in Hawaii.”
Fans are quite excited to see Chris Hemsworth in a new and different role, perhaps a villain! You can watch the trailer here.
