Chris Hemsworth is coming back to New Mexico.
The actor — who filmed the first “Thor” movie in NM — will begin to film “Horse Soldiers” beginning in December.
The New Mexico Film Office announced the project, which is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Black Label Media.
Production will take place from December through February in Albuquerque, Socorro and Alamogordo.
“Horse Soldiers” is based on the book by Doug Stanton, with a screenplay by Ted Tally and Peter Craig, and tells a powerful true story of events which occurred in the aftermath of 9/11.
When a U.S. Special Forces team and their untested captain are sent to a rugged, mountainous region of Afghanistan, they must join forces with a Northern Alliance warlord to fight against overwhelming odds to drive out the Taliban.
