20 Oct 2016 Christy || Horse Soldiers, News, Projects

Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon are set to star in the Nicolai Fuglsig-directed Horse Soldiers, the tense true story of a U.S. Special Forces team and their untested captain sent to a rugged, mountainous region of Afghanistan in the weeks after 9/11. They were assigned to join forces with a Northern Alliance warlord to fight against overwhelming odds to drive out the Taliban. The film is being co-financed by Black Label Media, whose Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill are producing with Jerry Bruckheimer and his Jerry Bruckheimer Films banner, where Chad Oman will be executive producer. The project is an adaptation of Doug Stanton’s book, which Peter Craig and Ted Tally adapted.

This becomes another step up for Black Label, which came out of Toronto with tremendous buzz for the Damien Chazelle-directed La La Land with Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.

“I am so happy that we’re finally getting this great project off the ground with wonderful leading actors, Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon,” said Bruckheimer, who developed the drama for the last seven years. “It’s also great to be partnered with Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill of Black Label Media, which is such a dynamic and exciting production company.”

BLM’s Trent Luckinbill called Horse Soldiers “exactly the kind of compelling dramatic story that Black Label is committed to telling – an incredible account of real life bravery and heroism in the face of insurmountable odds. We couldn’t be more proud to partner with Jerry Bruckheimer in bringing this incredible story to life.”[..]

26 May 2015 Christy || Home and Away, News

Chris Hemsworth is staying humble.

Even though the Thor actor has clearly reached A-list status, he recently went back to his not so glamorous roots on the Australia soap opera Home and Away, where he got his first big acting break. Chris’s returning role? “Guy eating a burger” at the diner where the soap’s characters are eating!

Chris gamely agreed to the role after coming back home to Australia and visiting his soap opera pals. The 31-year-old Avengers: Age of Ultron star played the character Kim Hyde from 2004 to 2007, the son of the principal of the soap’s Summer Bay High.

Last November, Chris proudly credited the show for helping to prepare him for Hollywood success.

“I thank my upbringing here in Australia and working on Home and Away and the people I met there and those lessons I learnt,” he told Australia’s Today show. “I really took all that work ethic and that experience over there [Hollywood] and I think that’s what pays off.”
