- AMERICAN ASSASSIN
Avengers and Thor star Chris Hemsworth may put his mighty hammer down long enough to play the lead role in American Assassin, CBS Films' adaptation of the Vince Flynn novel.
Deadline claims Hemsworth has been made a $10 million offer to play terrorist hunter Mitch Rapp in the action-thriller: "The novel is a prequel that explains how tragedy transformed Rapp from a college scholar and athlete into a ruthless hunter of terrorists for the CIA."
Also in talks to join the film is Bruce Willis, who would play Rapp’s mentor.
Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Homeland, Traitor) will direct from a script by Mike Finch, who rewrote an earlier draft by Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz.
