Babel’s Adriana Barraza Joins “Thor”

Oscar-nominated actress Adriana Barraza (“Babel,” “Drag Me to Hell”) is in negotiations to join the cast of “Thor” for Marvel Studios says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story centres on Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the god of thunder, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions re-ignite an ancient war. As punishment, he is cast down to Earth and forced to live among the humans.

Once there, he learns what it takes to be a hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth. Barraza will play one of the humans, alongside supporting cast members Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Idris Elba and Kat Dennings.

Filming is just about to begin at Marvel Studios in Manhattan Beach, California.
