Chris Hemsworth wants Star Wars role

Nov 21 2012, 4:02am CST | by

Chris Hemsworth wants to star in the new 'Star Wars' movies because he was such a fan of the film series growing up.

Chris Hemsworth wants to star in the new 'Star Wars' movies.
The 'Avengers' actor was a huge fan of the original films when he was growing up, so would jump at the chance at a part in the recently-announced Episodes VII, VIII, and IX in the sci-fi series.
Asked if he would be interested in the new films, he told MTV News: ''Oh man, I love those films. That's the sort of bread and butter of my film experience as a kid. I would love to work on something like that.''
The 29-year-old star also admitted he is sad to have missed out on a part in the films based on J. R. R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
He added: ''I also loved 'Lord of the Rings'. I would have loved to have done something in that world.''
Meanwhile, Lawrence Kasdan - who was involved in writing the original 'Star Wars' trilogy - and Simon Kinberg have reportedly closed deals to pen the final two movies in the new series.
The pair will join 'Little Miss Sunshine' writer Michael Arndt, who was previously announced to be writing episode VII for Disney Pictures.
However, it is not clear how the division of writing the two films will be made.

Paranormal Activity 5 has been given a release date that continues the series’ "new" trend of not having their films open on their traditional date surrounding Halloween. Paranormal Activity 5 was initially set to premiere this Halloween, and clearly that isn’t happening. Now we have word that Paramount is moving the fifth movie in the Paranormal Activity series from October 25 to March 13, 2015. The film no ...

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 5 Gets a Title and March 13, 2015 Release Date

Sep 17 2014 2:32pm CDT | Source: Collider

The Paranormal Activity 5 release date has been pushed yet again, but Paramount has also given a title to the found footage sequel, which likely signals this release date will (hopefully) stick.  The follow-up will be titled Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension and will now open in theaters on March 13, 2015 instead of October 25th of this year (which didn’t seem likely to happen anyway).  The pic will square off at the box ...

Why Hank Pym Probably Isn't Ultron's Creator In Age of Ultron

Sep 16 2014 8:38pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Yesterday, the official plot synopsis for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron was released. There's one line in it that has people talking: "When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance." Many people have jumped to assume that the "dor ...

Producing and starring in a film about Hank Williams' doctorIf you thought the most beloved music on Asgard was some combination of massive trumpets and weird bells ringing, think again. Apparently it was the soulful country sound of Hank Williams’ music. How else to explain that, on the heels of Tom “Loki” Hiddleston gearing up to play the man himself, his on-screen brother Chris Hemsworth will produce and star in a fictional film about the ill-fated crooner’s doct ...

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Now Has an Official Synopsis, Check Out the Film’s Plot

Sep 15 2014 7:32pm CDT | Source: Collider

Even though I think Guardians of the Galaxy trumped 2012's Avengers in overall quality, I wouldn't count the supremely talented Joss Whedon out in terms of one-upping it in the Avengers: Age of Ultron. He's certainly not lacking in ability and, if this synopsis is any indication (and one assumes that it is), Age of Ultron will be insanely eventful.  It also looks like it corrects the original film's first act issues. "When ...

Don’t Take Chris Evans’ Captain America Shield From Him Just Yet

Sep 11 2014 2:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

In Hollywood, nothing and no one is infallible. At some point, Marvel Studios will realize that. Some thought The Avengers would be a problem; others assume this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy would be their first misstep. Neither was. The Edgar Wright Ant-Man controversy is the next speed bump and, after that, the big issue could be the fact that many of Marvel’s major stars are ending their contracts. Robert ...
