Chris Hemsworth’s ‘El Royale’ Enlists Russell Crowe and Dakota Johnson

Jan 18, 2018


Oscar-winner Russell Crowe (The Nice Guys) and Dakota Johnson (Jump Street) are reportedly joining Fox’s Bad Times At The El Royale. The rest of the cast includes Chris Hemsworth, Jeff Bridges, Cailee Spaeny, and Cynthia Erivo.

El Royale comes from the mind of Cabin In The Woods writer-director Drew Goddard (The Martian, Cloverfield), who will be tackling Fox’s Deadpool team-up flick X-Force next.

Set in the 1960’s, the shoot ’em up will focus on a group of oddball strangers that will collide violently at a Lake Toahe hotel in California. 


Previously, we reported that Godzilla and Avengers cinematographer Seamus McGarvey would be working on the action flick. Filming will be taking place in Vancouver and now also Los Angeles. Production will take place there under the working title Purple Harvest from January 29th until April 13th.

Fox has slated the film to go head-to-head with Sony’s Venom on October 5th, 2018. There’s a good chance it’ll move out of the way of the comic book flick.
