Rene Russo has joined the cast of Thor, the film to be directed by Kenneth Branagh about Marvel Comics' Norse god of thunder. Russo is set to play Frigga, wife to Odin (the dude we name Wednesday after), step mother of Thor and foster mother to Loki, the villain of the story.
Mark Protosevich and Zack Stentz penned the script, which has the powerful but arrogant warrior Thor reigniting an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
This movie seems to have had an insane amount of casting announcements. A whole lot. There can't be many (if any) more, can there?
