It looks like Chris Hemsworth’s wife, Elsa Pataky, is attempting to take his place as their home’s biggest action star! Next, the actress will appear as the tough Captain JJ Collins in the Netflix action movie Interceptor. It’s actually a family affair, as Hemsworth will serve as an executive producer on the movie.
Releasing this June, Interceptor is directed by Matthew Reilly. Reilly also worked on the script with Stuart Beattie. Besides the Thor star, the film is also being executive produced by Christopher Mapp, Robert Slaviero, Kathy Morgan, and Peter D. Graves.
Netflix just released the official trailer for the movie on May 4.
Plot: What’s the story about?
The tough and reality-bruised Captain JJ Collins (Elsa Pataky) finds herself in charge of a lone nuclear missile interceptor base in the middle of the Pacific Ocean after she is wrongfully drummed out of her dream job at the Pentagon. When a simultaneous coordinated attack then threatens the base itself, Collins comes face-to-face with the charismatic yet crooked Alexander Kessel (Luke Bracey), a former US military intelligence officer intent on carrying out an unthinkable plan. With only minutes on the clock, Collins must utilize her years of tactical training and military expertise to determine who she can trust and stop Kessel and his covert mercenaries from completing their twisted and terrible mission.
Spanish model Elsa Pataky has been branching out quite a bit with her acting jobs in recent years. Before this movie, she also starred in the Australian Netflix series Tidelands and several Spanish series. Pataky is probably best known for playing Elena Neves in several Fast and Furious films. She also starred alongside her husband in 12 Strong.
