Sir Anthony Hopkins has signed on to the big screen adaptation of the Thor comic book. Hopkins will play the Norse God Odin.
In a nut shell, the plot involves God Thor, whose reckless actions re-start a war, causing him to be cast down to earth. He is forced to face his brother, Loki, who sends troops to earth to try and conquer it.
Thor will be played by Chris Hemsworth, and Loki by Tom Hiddleston. Also starring is Natalie Portman. Kenneth Branagh is directing. “Thor” is scheduled for release in January 2011.
