Seeing as how he’s already killed it in Snow White and the Huntsman, The Avengers and Thor, it was only a matter of type before Steven Spielberg knocked on Chris Hemsworth‘s door and ushered him into cinematic history. (Can you tell how much we loved A.I.?) That’s the rumor from Deadline, anyway; the site claims the director is pursuing Hemsworth to star in “technothriller” Robocolypse, a film based on the titular Daniel H. Wilson novel about “the human race’s attempt to survive an apocalyptic robot uprising.” So, right up both of their alleys, is what we’re saying.
Maybe we’re getting ahead of ourselves, but given his action success, acting prowess and dreamy hair, we suspect it’s only a matter of time until Chris makes it into Spielberg’s top five classic action heroes list. Who are the other four? We are so glad you asked.
