After the phenomenal success of Extraction, the Netflix original feature starring Chris Hemsworth, it would appear the Australian actor has signed on for four more films with the global streaming giant.
According to News Break, the “massive” deal could also help the economy of his native Australia, as it guarantees at least one of the four films will be shot there. The 37-year-old is reportedly negotiating for the other three films to be filmed there as well.
Extraction was one of this year’s most-streamed films on Netflix, racking up more than 99 million views in just the first four weeks. In May, the Rush star took to his Instagram account to thank his fans for making it a roaring success.
“It looks like it is going to be Netflix’s biggest feature film of all time, which is absolutely mind-blowing and we are blown away by the response and the support,” he gushed in a video shared with his 41.3 million followers.
With regards to ‘sequels or prequels’ he stated that though nothing has been confirmed, he would gladly return to the role.
One film believed to be included as part of the deal is Spiderhead, a science-fiction drama based on the George Saunders short story Escape from Spiderhead, about criminals undergoing emotion-altering drug testing. Directed by Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski, Hemsworth is slated to join Whiplash star Miles Tiller and Birds of Prey actress Jurnee Smollett among the cast.
Netflix has yet to make an official announcement.
