On the heels of directing Avengers: Endgame, the Russo brothers (Joe and Anthony Russo) have signed on to produce Down Under Cover.
The buddy-cop comedy stars Tiffany Haddish and Chris Hemsworth.
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.
The Russos will produce with Mike Larocca under their AGBO banner, along with Thematic Entertainment — the production shingle hatched by Hemsworth, John Finemore, James Hoppe and Ben Grayson— and Haddish.
I will keep you updated on this project as more scoop becomes available.
