The “Thor” star has optioned the film rights to Steve Earle’s novel “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive”

Now that he’s wrapped Michael Mann‘s “Blackhat,” Chris Hemsworth is trying on another hat — movie producer.

Hemsworth has optioned the film rights to Steve Earle’s novel “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive” to star in and produce along with Laura Bickford (“Traffic”).

Benjamin Grayson wrote the script and will make his directorial debut with the indie film.

“I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive” is a dark, fictitious tale that follows Toby “Doc” Ebersole, who’s haunted by the ghost of Hank Williams following his involvement in the country singer’s mysterious death in 1953.

After his medical license is revoked, the story picks up 10 years later in the red-light district of San Antonio, Texas, where Doc supports his morphine habit by performing illegal medical procedures. Hank’s ghost serves a demented Jiminy Cricket, visiting Doc often whether he’s wanted or not.

The film takes its title from a 1952 song Williams co-wrote that was the last single released during his lifetime.

Grayson served as Kenneth Branagh’s assistant on “Thor” and John Lee Hancock‘s assistant on “Saving Mr. Banks.”

After receiving strong reviews for his performance as Formula One driver James Hunt in Ron Howard‘s “Rush,” 2015 is expected to be a huge year for Hemsworth. In addition to the cybercrime thriller “Blackhat,” he also stars in Howard’s whale tale “In the Heart of the Sea” and Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

The Australian actor is currently preparing to shoot his first studio comedy, New Line’s reboot of “Vacation,” and he’s also set to star in Frank Darabont’s “The Huntsman.”

Hemsworth is represented by CAA, ROAR, Morrissey Management and attorney Cheryl Snow.

The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston will star in a new film exploring the origins of cinematic mega-ape King Kong.

Hiddleston will take a pivotal role in Skull Island with Jordan Vogt-Roberts directing, Legendary films announced on Tuesday. The film will be distributed on Nov. 4, 2016.

Legendary reps gave very little details about the project in a release sent out Tuesday, pointing out that “previous works have touched on the island” where King Kong began his cinematic journey.

The 2005 Peter Jackson film King Kong starring Naomi Watts and Jack Black started on Skull Island before heading off to New York.

"But staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world," the release continued.

The company released Godzilla earlier this year.

The Skull Island project was announced at San Diego’s Comic-Con this year with an original script draft by Max Borenstein.

Hiddleston, who just completed the sci-fi drama High-Rise, has been a fan favorite, portraying the demi-god villain Loki in The Avengers and Thor Marvel franchises.

That little headbutt in the second one gave me diabetes.

“Excuse me, human. I would like a petting, please. Yes, thank you.”

“Um, excuse me, human? Human? Ah yes, I’d like another petting please. Ah, thank you.”

Always reblog Polite Cat.

Goodness.

Oh my god the little headbutt in the second gif.

So cute!

Okay, so I just looked up Rodney Crowell’s tour list and even if Tom ends up touring with him it will sadly mean nothing for me cause he isn’t coming anywhere near where I live. But if you were wondering what his schedule is like here it is for you all.

Rodney Crowell will be in Nashvile, TN on September 18, 2014 at the City Winery :)
