Chris Hemsworth is to star in 'Shadow Runner'.
Details on the plot are being kept under wraps but it is believed Chris' character will lead an elite team of operatives who take on impossible tasks.
Columbia Pictures production president Hannah Minghella said: "We think the story is a terrific action thriller for Chris Hemsworth and we know this project is in great hands with Tripp, Beau and Will as they develop the film."
'Drive' writer Hossein Amini - who will executive produce - came up with the initial idea for the movie, with the inspiration being an incident when an Israeli assassination team targeted someone they believed murdered soldiers and stockpiled missiles, eventually tracking him to Dubai, where a 17-man team killed him in the corridor of a luxury hotel.
However, Deadline.com report the film will not directly replicate those events.
