While some Marvel film projects remain unclear as to how true they will stay to their source, actor Chris Hemsworth, star of the upcoming Thor, revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood that fans of the Asgardian god of thunder have nothing to worry about in terms of the film grossly straying from the character’s four-color origins.

“I have a long blonde wig and a nice big red cape and all sorts of armor and interesting bits and pieces. I have the hammer {too}. It’s pretty true to the comics,” said the actor. In taking it a step further from just Thor’s appearance, Hemsworth mentioned that, “There’s so many different versions of the comic books, they’ve sort of bonded quite a few of them to form this particular story, but it’s all very true to the original stuff.” He went on to say that the movie was over thee-fourths of the way finished, and that fans will not be disappointed in the Kenneth Branagh-directed film, which will pit Thor against his arch-nemesis, the god of mischief, Loki.

The film is set to be released on May 6th, 2011.

03 Apr 2010 Melanie || Ca$h, Headlines & Rumors

In this day of cookie-cutter thrillers and Hollywood formula flicks, writer/director Stephen Milburn Anderson and producer Naveen Chathappuram bring us a film that shatters genre rules.

It’s a story about the power of money and how it manipulates human behavior. In a movie manufactured by Hollywood groupthink, this film would have been about two innocent victims (Sam and Leslie) who struggle to make their mortgage payments and one day, during a police chase, a briefcase bursting with cash lands on their old car, they decide to keep the money and the bad guy comes looking for it. It would be the naive couple’s story.

But Ca$h isn’t that simple. The story starts with Pyke Kubic (Sean Bean), a Brit flying into Chicago to help out his twin brother, Reese (Sean Bean), whose cash-laden briefcase collided with law-abiding Sam’s car. So Ca$h is a brother loyalty story. Besides, the brothers make a business deal: Pyke will recover Reese’s cash and they’ll split it 50/50.

HOLLYWOOD heavyweight Sir Anthony Hopkins is reportedly causing drama on the set of his latest film, Thor, complaining about his “inexperienced” Australian co-star.

An on-set source tells the NY Daily News the Oscar winner is acting like quite the “divo” by constantly trying to “direct” Chris Hemsworth – the brother of Miley Cyrus’ boyfriend Liam – who stars as the title character (and Hopkins’ son) in the comic-book-based film.

“Anthony has not tried to hide his disapproval of Chris’ acting skills,” the insider says.
