Chris Hemworth in Avengers: Age of Ultron

There's another heroic mission for Chris Hemsworth to take on.

The "Avengers: Infinity War" star has signed on to star in the upcoming Netflix action film "Dhaka," Deadline reports. Some of his MCU colleagues are also involved, including Sam Hargrave, who will make his directorial debut, and Joe and Anthony Russo.

In "Dhaka," Hemsworth will play a man who goes in to save an Indian boy after he is kidnapped. He'll reportedly have to overcome some personal obstacles, in addition to the challenges his mission presents. The film's name comes from the city where the boy is hidden.

The actor most recently worked with the Hargrave and the Russo brothers on "Infinity War." He, of course, reprised his role as Thor, while the Russos directed and served as executive producers. Hargrave was a second unit director and has also worked in the MCU as a stunt man and stunt coordinator.

"Dhaka" is scheduled to kick off production in November, THR reports, and the film's release is expected to come in March 2019.
