Marvel’s Thor casts Warrior’s Three, Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman also cast

I can’t wait. So glad Kenneth Branagh is doing this one. Variety has it:

“Thor” helmer Kenneth Branagh has locked Stuart Townsend, Ray Stevenson, and Tadanobu Asano to play Warrior’s Three, a trio of Asgardian adventurers who fight alongside the Norse god in the Marvel Entertainment drama.Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston and Natalie Portman also star in the pic scripted by Mark Protosevich and Zack Stentz. Paramount Pictures will release “Thor” on May 20, 2011….

More from FirstShowing.net:

Way back before we knew that Chris Hemsworth had been cast to play Thor, one of the originally rumored candidates for the role was Alexander Skarsgard (who is currently on “True Blood”), the son of more well known actor Stellan Skarsgard. According to a report from ComingSoon (that comes from a translation of a Swedish write-up via TT Spektra in Sweden), Stellan Skarsgard revealed that he has joined the cast of Kenneth Branagh’s Thor in a role that he can’t yet reveal. Stellan is still an incredibly talented actor and I gained even more respect for him after Pirates of the Caribbean (where he played Will Turner’s father).

The Swedish article claims “Skarsgård is ready for a role in action movie Thor” and includes this quote: “They wanted me to sign without reading the script. That I refused to do. Then they sent one to me that was so coded that I could only print one copy.” ….With Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Jaimie Alexander, Tom Hiddleston, and now Stellan Skarsgard, Kenneth Branagh has rounded up one hell of a great cast for Thor..


On the casting of Chris Hemsworth (Kirk’s dad in ST 2009!):

It looks like we finally have our Thor! After months and months of casting rumors, Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Australian actor Chris Hemsworth has been cast as the Norse God of Thunder. You may not know Hemsworth by name yet, but if you’ve seen Star Trek, you know his face – he played Kirk’s father George Kirk in the opening of that movie. Finke says that he got the role through some insistence on the part of his agent, and once he got on tape for a reading the second time, he was in. Hemsworth also scored the lead role in MGM’s remake of Red Dawn that’s also in development this year….

Our previous post on the film here

…Fran Kranz, the Dollhouse star who also appears in the upcoming horror movie Cabin in the Woods, calls it “basically Evil Dead meets The Truman Show.”

Writer/director Drew Goddard and co-writer/producer Joss Whedon remain secretive about the plot of the film, saying only that it will subvert the horror genre.

Kranz, who plays computer genius Topher in Whedon’s Fox series Dollhouse, wouldn’t elaborate on his own intriguing description of the movie, saying only that it has to do with “the order in which these people kind of die,” he said in an exclusive interview Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Pasadena, Calif. ..

…Like the familiar story, each of the five teens fills an archetypal role before the film shakes things up. “I’m the party guy,” Kranz said. “I’m that guy. You know how it is. There’s the jock guy. There’s the virginal kind of girl. There’s the party slutty girl. There’s the kind of nice guy who kind of gets the girl. Then there’s the stoner. I’m that guy. I’m the party animal stoner guy, and it’s a lot of fun to play.”…

Sounds like good horror fun to me. The film opens February 5th, 2010…
