With production on “Thor” having just wrapped, filmmaker Kenneth Branagh has already signed on to direct his next project “The Boys in the Boat” for The Weinstein Company reports Variety.

Based on the non-fiction book written by Daniel James Brown, the inspiring true story centers around the University of Washington’s powerhouse rowing team in the 1930s.

In a brief statement, Branagh says “The Boys in The Boat is an epic. I was completely captivated by the characters, the era, and the dreams of a generation unfolding beautifully and dramatically.”
