Breakin’ News: ‘Thor’ To Begin Filming In January, Mortals Weep


Production Weekly (a pay-to-view service for production schedules on films) posted on twitter that filming on Marvel’s “Thor” is set to begin “mid-January” in LA and will move to New Mexico from “March till late-April”.

If you haven’t kept up with the latest Marvel comic book film, “Thor” will be directed by Kenneth Branagh with Chris Hemsworth (Captain Kirk’s father in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek”) playing the Norse god and alter-ego Donald Blake. Along side Hemsworth will be Natalie Portman as Jane Foster (a friend to Blake), Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Tom Hiddleston as the god of chaos Loki.

The official description so far is below.

“The movie’s story sees the god of thunder Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions re-ignite an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.”

This puts the film on track for the planned May 20, 2011 release. Look for production images and footage in the next six months.
