Chris Hemsworth is doing away with his testosterone-fueled embodiment roles and is pursuing a change of acting pace as he is set to produce and star in supernatural thriller, “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive.” Read on for further details.
On-screen brothers in “Thor” and movie associations with prominent singer Hank Williams, we were first informed about Chris Hemsworth’s co-star Tom Hiddleston about taking the lead role in the biopic of country singer Hank Williams in “I Saw The Light.” This time around, prepare yourself for a drastic change of role for the actor who plays the Mighty Thor. Putting his hammer down in the mean time, Hemsworth is setting the production process for the movie adaptation of Steve Earle’s novel, “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive.”
By Cinema Blend, the movie is one indie-budgeted project that will be helmed by first-time feature film helmsman Benjamin Grayson. Taking place 10 years after the passing of a country singer legend, “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive” follows the fictional story of the morphine-addicted physician named Toby “Doc” Ebersole, who was involved in the Hank Williams death case way back in 1953. The estranged doctor now lives in San Antonio, Texas and makes a living out of performing illegal abortions and unquestioned medical treatments. Mental impairment is imminent. During the decade-long exile he’s been subjecting himself to, Ebersole has been actively suffering from haunted visions of Hank Williams.
To top it all, Slash Film reported a whimsical addition into the plot — the coming of yet another reality shifting character named Graciela, a young Mexican immigrant. She appears in the neighborhood to enlist the doctor’s help then inexplicable things started to happen. Graciela has a wound on her wrist. Although it never heals, she is able to heal other people by touching them. Then everybody is changed for good, except Hank’s ghost.
There were no other actors whose involvements were confirmed for this eerie pic, but for the behind-the-scenes team, Hemsworth will be joined in by producer Laura Bickford. It’s all plans from here on out for “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive,” but we can expect Hemsworth to be gracing the silver screen next year for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and for the coming years more, as he’s also set for the “Vacation” reboot with Leslie Mann, “Snow White and The Huntsman’s” spin-off with Charlize Theron in “The Huntsman” and of course the conclusion of the trilogy Marvel film franchise, “Thor 3.”
This concludes our scoop on Chris Hemsworth’s acting and career shift for “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive” film adaptation. Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates in the entertainment world.
