Chris Hemsworth to star in National Geographic docu-series Limitless, executive produced by Darren Aronofsky
Chris Hemsworth has also executive produced Limitless alongside Ben Grayson, Jane Root and Arif Nurmohamed of Nutopia, Matt Renner and Bengt Anderson.
Chris Hemsworth will be turning into a "human guinea pig" for National Geographic series Limitless. The docu-series, to be executive produced by filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, was announced at the 2020 Television Critics Association press tour, reported Entertainment Weekly.
The scientific series will see Hemsworth undergo a number of challenges that will explore different ways humans can live longer.
The show will then follow the 36-year-old actor as he discovers how to live a healthier and smarter life by transforming himself through six physical and mental challenges around the world.
Each episode will tackle a different technique that is to help extend human life — like regenerating damage, shocking the body, and supercharging memory.
"Basically, I was somehow convinced to volunteer myself as a human guinea pig and endure a series of mental and physical challenges across the globe, all for the sake of science," Hemsworth said in a statement.
"We’re hoping to shed some light on new ideas and emerging science with the focus on extending a healthy life span. Production starts soon, so wish me luck," he added.
The Avengers: Endgame star will also executive produce the show alongside Ben Grayson, Jane Root and Arif Nurmohamed of Nutopia, Matt Renner and Bengt Anderson.
Hemsworth will be seen next in Out of the Fire, previously titled Dhaka, an action thriller helmed by Sam Hargarve. David Harbour, Priyanshu Painyuli and Manoj Bajpayee are also part of the cast.
