David Harbour, known for playing Hopper in Netflix’s horror series Stranger Things, has joined the cast of the Netflix movie, Dhaka. Chris Hemsworth is headlining the movie as a mercenary called Tyler Rake who is tasked to rescue a kidnapped Indian by from “one of the world’s most impenetrable cities.” Sam Hargrave, a stunt director, is debuting as a director with Dhaka. The production is handled by the Russo Brothers’ AGBO. Joe Russo has penned the script.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Harbour will essay the role of a fellow mercenary (Tyler Rake’s comrade), albeit one with secret intentions. Harbour shot to fame thanks to his performance in Stranger Things as a jaded cop in a small town. He recently wrapped up the show’s third season. He will also appear in his first starring role in a theatrical film in the Hellboy reboot, which comes out in April next year.
Hemsworth was shooting for the film in India until today. He was welcomed to the country with, among other things, an edible Mjolnir, his character in MCU Thor’s weapon of choice until it was destroyed in Thor Ragnarok. The actor wrapped the Indian portion of the principal photography today itself. He posted a video on his Instagram account, captioning it, “That’s a wrap for the India portion of our shoot, next stop Thailand. Can’t say enough how grateful we are to the people of India for letting us run riot through the streets while shooting what I think could be some of the most intense and exciting action sequences ever done. Our director @thesamhargrave is bringing it to a whole new level 💪💪🤙👍👍 #netflix #india”
