Chris Hemsworth and Tiffany Haddish are set to team up for the stripper-themed buddy cop action comedy “Down Under Cover” at Thematic Entertainment.
Hemsworth stars in the film as 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, a lone wolf (Haddish) who does things only one way: hers. Together they have to work as an unlikely duo to solve the crime of their careers.
Peter Hoare penned the script and the film’s tone is said to be akin to “48 Hours” and “Rush Hour”. Hemsworth not only has the required physique but has shown a knack for comedy in recent years and the film is expected to be a hot seller at Cannes this year.
Hemsworth, Haddish, John Finemore, James Hoppe and Ben Grayson will produce.
