‘Avengers’ Star Chris Hemsworth Books Disaster Tale ‘In the Heart of the Sea’

Chris HemsworthChris Hemsworth is water-bound after signing up to star in the disaster tale In the Heart of the Sea.

In the true-story film, Hemsworth will play the first mate of a ship attacked by a giant sperm whale, which leads to a shipwreck of potentially cannibalistic proportions. In the Heart of the Sea has been in the works for several years — with everyone from Edward Zwick to Barry Levinson attached to direct at various times — and is said to have inspired Herman Melville’s literary classic Moby Dick.

It’ll be quite a change — at least settingwise — for Hemsworth, who has already appeared in two blockbusters this summer: the all-star superhero epic The Avengers and the reimagined fairytale adaptation Snow White and the Huntsman. He will be seen next in November’s perpetually delayed action remake Red Dawn.
