As good as he is as the god of thunder, Chris Hemsworth hasn't really found his place in Hollywood outside of the "Thor" movies. But for his next non-Marvel film, he's getting help from one of the all-time great directors.
Michael Mann returns after almost six years away from feature films with "Blackhat," a cyber thriller that casts Hemsworth as the buffest MIT grad of all time.
The movie has a familiar set-up: after a serious hack, the government turns to an imprisoned hacker (Hemsworth) for help catching the mad man behind everything.
I'm rooting for both Mann and Hemsworth on this one, since they could both use the win. We'll find out for sure in January, when "Blackhat" hits theaters.
