Chris Hemsworth To Star In Netflix's "Spiderhead"

Chris Hemsworth is starring in the Netflix film titled Spiderhead. The psychological thriller based on New Yorker short story by George Saunders, “Escape From Spiderhead,” is directed by Joseph Kosinski. The film also stars Miles Teller. It is about two inmates that form a connection while grappling with their pasts in a state-of-the-art prison. It is run by a brilliant visionary who experiments on his subjects with mind-altering drugs.


In a state-of-the-art penitentiary run by brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), inmates wear a surgically attached device that administers dosages of mind-altering drugs in exchange for commuted sentences. There are no bars, no cells, or orange jumpsuits. In Spiderhead, incarcerated volunteers are free to be themselves. Until they’re not. At times, they’re a better version. Need to lighten up? There’s a drug for that. At a loss for words? There’s a drug for that, too. But when two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), form a connection, their path to redemption takes a twistier turn as Abnesti’s experiments start to push the limits of free will altogether.
