According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wei Tang and Leehom Wang, who starred in Ang Lee’s ’Lust, Caution,’ have joined Chris Hemsworth in Michael Mann’s (Heat, Ali, The Last of the Mohicans) untitled cyber thriller. Mann has been developing this as-yet-untitled project for over a year, co-writing the script with Morgan Davis Foehl. Academy Award nominee Viola Davis is also part of the cast.
While plot details are currently few and far between, it is said that the film takes place in a world of cyber threats and attacks. Wei Tang and Leehom Wang will play a brother and sister duo, with Tang reportedly playing Chris Hemsworth’s love interest. Production is set to begin in June. Michael Mann’s last directional effort was 2009′s ‘Public Enemies,’ which starred Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. Since ‘Public Enemies’ the director had been linked to a handful of films, including ‘Gold,’ which had Christian Bale circling; and the racing pic ‘Go Like Hell’ for Fox.

New Look At Chris Hemsworth’s Thor In ‘Thor: The Dark World’; Marvel’s Kevin Feige Comments On The Film
Entertainment Weekly has unleashed this new image of Chris Hemsworth as the eponymous God of Thunder in the upcoming Marvel film ‘Thor: The Dark World.’ In ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander, Tadanobu Asano, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston and Natalie Portman also reprise their roles from the first film, while Zack Levi is confirmed to play Fandril, Christopher Eccleston will play the villainous Malekith The Accursed, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will be playing Algrim the Strong and Kurse.
Chris Hemsworth’s thunder-summoning god was banished to Earth to learn humility in 2011′s ‘Thor,’ but he’s still grappling with his responsibilities as a leader and protector. “I would say there’s a question of what happens when you’re now seemingly ready for something, but don’t necessarily want it anymore,” Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige tells Entertainment Weekly. “That’s part of his internal struggle. Tony Stark wasn’t perfect at the end of Iron Man 1, and I don’t think Thor is perfect at the end of Thor 1 – particularly in his relationship with his brother, considering what he went through in Avengers.”
Jaimie Alexander Speaks On ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ Sif’s Thoughts On Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster & Wonder Woman
As the first trailer for ‘Thor: The Dark World’ arrived online earlier this week, IGN spoke with Jaimie Alexander about the trailer, what we can expect from the film, and also fans’ desire to see her play Wonder Woman. In the trailer Alexander’s Lady Sif looks none too happy to see Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster. On the topic of Lady Sif’s feelings toward Jane in ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ Alexander revealed, “Well, I think that everyone can tell from the trailer that Jane comes to Asgard, which could pose a threat. You know, we’re bringing someone from another realm into our realm who technically shouldn’t be able to survive there. So I think she’s really, more than seeing Jane as a threat to somebody that she loves in a love triangle way, it’s more that Jane could be a threat to her people. And Sif is very protective of her fellow Asgardians and the throne and that sort of thing, so she’s quite wary of Jane. But also, she really, really loves Thor — as a comrade, as a warrior and as the future king of Asgard — but also as a man.
She continued, “So I think it’s very hard for her to see that he still has feelings for this other person. But you really get to see how much she loves him because she does end up sacrificing a lot. It’s a great part this time around. It was a lot of fun, and you get to see a more vulnerable side of Sif. You also get to see more of Asgard, the daily life in Asgard and the Warriors [Three] and where they come from, things like that. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Speaking to ET Online at the Los Angeles premiere for Marvel’s ‘Iron Man 3,’ Tom Hiddleston was asked about his thoughts on the recently released first trailer for ‘Thor: The Dark World.’ “Oh, I think it’s fantastic. I mean, it’s the tiniest sneak peak of what we did, but it’s so exciting – it really shows off Alan Taylor’s [director] talent and what he brings to the whole thing.” Hiddleston continued, “As an actor it’s such a gift to be able to build on an enthusiasm that Marvel have built up over the course of several films. I’m so proud of what we’ve done. The thing that we really did… we just sweated blood and tears to deliver on the love and affection the audience has for these characters. It’s really exciting.”
Given that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is considered a “villian”, the actor was asked if he’s surprised by how much love and affection fans have for his character, “He’s this crazy, interstellar fascist in some ways (laughs), so he really shouldn’t be so loved, possibly. But he’s the God of Mischief, you know? I have enormous fun playing him. I feel like his range is so deep. I’m just so proud and genuinely touched that people love him so much.” Check out the interview in full below.
Apfelgriebs has put together stellar ‘Thor: The Dark World’ piece centering on Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief, Loki. You can find more of Apfelgriebs’ work on Facebook and Tumblr. In ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander, Tadanobu Asano, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston and Natalie Portman reprise their roles from the first film, while Zack Levi is confirmed to play Fandril, Christopher Eccleston will play the villainous Malekith The Accursed, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will be playing Algrim the Strong and Kurse.
On where he wishes to take Loki in ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ Tom Hiddleston has said, “I’d like to take Loki to his absolute rock bottom. I’d like to see him yield, essentially, to his darkest instincts. Then, having hit rock bottom, maybe come back up. I think the fascination for me about playing Loki is that, in the history of the mythology and the comic books and the Scandinavian myths, is he’s constantly dancing on this fault line of the dark side and redemption.”
