Netflix’s new action movie Dhaka is written by Joe Russo and will be the directorial debut of stuntman/stunt coordinator Sam Hargrave, who doubles for Chris Evans in the Captain America movies. Dhaka already stars Thor’s Chris Hemsworth and TheHollywoodReporter reveals that David Harbour will be playing a fellow mercenary in the action film, who may be friend or foe.
Set in an underworld of weapon dealers and traffickers, where a young boy becomes a pawn in a war between notorious drug lords. As kidnappers trap the boy inside one of the world’s most impenetrable cities, his plight attracts a skilled mercenary named Tyler Rake (Hemsworth). Rake is a broken man with nothing to lose, harboring a death wish that makes an already deadly mission even more appealing to him.
Harbour is best known for his work on Netflix’s series Stranger Things with the third season on its way and will be playing the new Hellboy in the reboot coming out in April.
Shooting on the action project using the working title Ciudad (City in Spanish) has already started. Filming locales will include India, Indonesia, and China. It’s expected to complete production on March 1st.
It’s possible that Dhaka could be ready to drop sometime in late 2019.
