An unlikely duo is joining forces on the big screen for a new comedy, and we can't wait to see the results.

Deadline has the scoop about a new flick that is set to be shopped at the Cannes Film Festival later this month, starring two of the hottest names in Hollywood: Chris Hemsworth and Tiffany Haddish. The pair are set to headline a buddy action comedy called "Down Under Cover," which the trade says is being molded after flicks like "48 Hours," "Rush Hour," and "The Heat."

Here's the breakdown of the film's plot, according to Deadline:
In 'Down Under Cover,' Hemsworth will play a detective who goes undercover to crack a series of baffling casino heists in which the prime suspects are a troupe of Australian male erotic dancers. He’s forced to take the partner no one else will — Haddish’s character, a lone wolf who does things only one way: hers. Together they have to work as an unlikely duo to solve the crime of their careers.

As Deadline notes, while Hemsworth is known to most of the world as the man behind Thor in the "Avengers" flicks, the affable Aussie actor also has some sizable comedy chops, too, which he showed off in the more lighthearted "Thor: Ragnarok," and in a hilarious supporting role in 2016's "Ghostbusters." Haddish, meanwhile, is no stranger to high-profile comedies, starring in a string of hits including "Girls Trip" and "Night School," among many others.

Based on the actors' resumes alone, we're already looking forward to this flick.
