Chris Hemsworth has signed on for a four-movie deal with Netflix that could inject millions of dollars into the Australian entertainment industry.
The 37-year-old actor has inked a deal which will see at least one of the four movies filmed Down Under, according to The Sunday Telegraph.
Chris is reportedly negotiating for the three other films to also be filmed in Australia.
One film believed to be included in the deal is Spiderhead – a sci-fi drama about criminals undergoing emotion-altering drug testing.
Directed by Top Gun: Maverick’s Joseph Kosinski, the flick will star Chris alongside American actors Miles Tiller and Jurnee Smollett.
Netflix is yet to comment on the rumoured deal. Chris has already enjoyed huge success with his previous Netflix film Extraction.
The 2020 blockbuster is one of Netflix’s most-watched feature films, with more than 99 million views on the streaming platform in the first four weeks.
In May, the Thor star thanked his fans on Instagram for making Extraction a roaring success.
‘It looks like it is going to be Netflix’s biggest feature film of all time, which is absolutely mind-blowing and we are blown away by the response and the support,’ gushed Chris in a video seen by his 41.3million followers.
In regards to Netflix pumping out ‘sequels and prequels’ of the record-breaking film, Chris stated that, though nothing has been confirmed, he would gladly return to the role.
‘There has been a lot of talk about sequels and prequels and all sorts of things and all I can say is who knows, but with this kind of support it is something I will be pretty stoked to jump back into.’
