Chris Hemsworth is teaming up with Netflix again for forthcoming movie Spiderhead.

The 37-year-old actor will appear alongside Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett in the flick, which will be directed by Joseph Kosinski, according to Deadline.

Spiderhead, based on a short story by George Saunders, “is set in the near future, when convicts are offered the chance to volunteer as medical subjects in hopes of shortening their sentences”.

“The focus is on two prisoners who become the test patients for emotion-altering drugs that force the prisoners to grapple with their pasts in a facility run by a brilliant visionary who supervises the program,” reads a description for the feature.

It’ll be Chris’ first movie for the streamer since his massive hit Extraction, which topped a new countdown of Netflix’s most successful films, after attracting 99 million viewers in its first month following its release in July.

According to Australia’s The Sunday Telegraph newspaper, it’s the first in a four-movie deal between the star and Netflix, with the rumored arrangement bringing filming Down Under.
