With his time as one of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe possibly winding down, Chris Hemsworth may have found a new franchise to star in. The Tracking Board reports that the actor is circling a new spec script entitled Allan Quatermain, written by up and coming scribe Barnett Brettler. Sony Pictures is eyeing the script, which is being considered to start a new franchise.
No story details have been given thus far, but the Allan Quartermain character has been seen on the big screen several times. The beloved character first appeared in H. Rider Haggard's 1885 novel King Solomon's Mines, which spawned 13 sequels. On the big screen, the character has been played by Richard Chamberlain in the 1985 adaptation of King Solomon's Mines, and its 1986 sequel Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold. Most recently, Sean Connery portrayed the adventurer in 2003's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and Patrick Swayze played this iconic character in the two-part 2004 miniseries adaptation of King Solomon's Mines.Read More

After helping Earth's Mightiest Heroes take down Ultron in Avengers Age of Ultron last month, Chris Hemsworth is taking on a much different role. Director Paul Feig confirmed today that Chris Hemsworth will play the receptionist in his all-female Ghostbusters reboot. Nothing is known about the character, with the filmmaker only saying, "Our receptionist #whoyougonnacall" on his Twitter page earlier today.
The casting choice is quite appropriate, since the new Ghostbusters will all be female. Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones have signed on to play the new Ghostbusters, but there is still very little we know about the story thus far.
