Joe and Anthony Russo, who worked with Chris Hemsworth and Hargrave when they directed Avengers: Infinity War and two Captain America movies, are producing via their AGBO banner. The action thriller is set up by Netflix, reports deadline.com.
Dhaka is an action film in which Hemsworth has to liberate a kidnapped Indian boy. Physically brave but an emotional coward, the man has to come to terms with his identity and sense of self. The script is written by Joe Russo and he's producing with his brother, AGBO's Mike Larocca, Thematic Entertainment's Hemsworth and Ben Grayson.
The project will be shot until March 2019 at locales in India and Indonesia and is due for release in May, 2019.
