Thor Ragnarok

Story by Jack Foley

THE Russo brothers are reuniting with Thor star Chris Hemsworth to produce his new buddy comedy Down Under Cover, which pairs him with Tiffany Haddish.

The buddy-cop action comedy is being touted as a film that aims to recapture the spirit of films like 48 Hours, Rush Hour and The Heat.

Hemsworth will play a detective who goes undercover to crack a series of baffling casino heists in which the prime suspects are a troupe of Australian male erotic dancers.

However, he’s also forced to take on a new partner in the form of Haddish’s character, a lone wolf who does things her own way. They have to put aside their differences to crack the case.

The film, based on a script by Peter Hoare, is being made available to buyers at Cannes.
