Chris Hemsworth is very quickly becoming an A-lister, after making a small appearance in J.J. Abrams' STAR TREK, then becoming Marvel's resident god-superhero THOR. At this point, he is in very high demand and is ready to take on roles, as seen by his casting in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN.

Now it seems he has another action project down the pipeline, as Sony has picked up a pitch starring him, titled SHADOW RUNNER.

SHADOW RUNNER would feature Hemsworth as the lead of an operatives team who take on seemingly impossible tasks. The studio is keeping the project as under wraps as possible. We do know that it draws inspiration from an Israeli assassination team who was caught on film going after their target. Although the film is inspired from this, it will not actually be the plot of the film.

Sounds like a pretty interesting film, I always really like movies like this especially when they take a more realistic angle. However, since the project is so under wraps, we don't know if that will ultimately be the direction it takes. Putting Hemsworth in the lead seems like a great first step to a project that could easily grab audiences' anticipation.
