Sam Neill reunites with Taika Waititi and Jeff Goldblum in Thor: Ragnarok
The upcoming Thor: Ragnarok has added another fan-favorite actor to its cast, as Sam Neill reveals that he filmed a small role for the film.
“I’m not really allowed to say this and I can’t tell you what it is… I did a couple of days on Thor just before I came over here,” Neill tells Shortlist (via EW). “If I say anything else, Marvel’s secret agents — and they are lethal — will come and get me and probably my children, as well.”
Neill’s casting reunites him with director Taika Waititi, who directed him in his previous film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, but it also reunites him with his Jurassic Park co-star Jeff Goldblum. Who do you think Neill might be playing in the film? Sound off in the comments below!
Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. Cate Blanchett plays the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum stars as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban will add his might to the fray as Skurge.
Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay hails from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost. Current plans call for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Phase Three” chapter to shoot until October, although production could feasibly continue through the end of the year.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017.
