With the fourth installment of the Avengers franchise nearing its release, directors Joe and Anthony Russo discuss future projects and their forthcoming Netflix break, "Dhaka".
Speaking on the Empire Podcast, the directing duo talked about the future projects being shaped in their self-described 'progressive film studio' ABGO, and confirmed that they're working on a Netflix flick starring Chris Hemsworth as lead.
“That's Sam Hargrave, who did all of the second-unit directing on Avengers 3 and 4, who'll be directing." They said, "that's about a kidnap extractress (Chris Hemsworth) going to Dhaka to save the son of a drug dealer from India, so it's a complex movie with a lot of political texture in it.”
“Physically brave, but an emotional coward,” is how Hemsworth’s character is being identified. “He has to come to terms with his identity and sense of self,” a statement from Netflix said.
The film - which is written by co-producer Joe Russo himself - is a one of the countless projects the directors are excited about.
When inquired about other upcoming projects, The Russos opened up about another team up with Matthew Carnahan.
“We're working with Matthew Carnahan on an incredible film," They confirmed, adding: “a very powerful emotional story. It's a first-time directing, but he's an amazing writer."
Seems like we're in for a treat.
Even though not much is known about Dhaka and the remainder of the cast, reports say that the shooting will commence this November in India and Thailand - that's plenty time after Avengers 4.
