Chris Hemsworth confirms he will be travelling to Cowra after the regional NSW town launched a cheeky campaign encouraging him to visit


Chris Hemsworth has revealed he will be travelling to Cowra after the town launched a campaign encouraging him to visit with his family.

The town of Cowra, in Central West NSW, launched the campaign called ‘Get Chris to Cowra’ and joked about the idea of erecting a statue called ‘The Big Chris’.

The Hollywood star, 37, announced on Instagram, he’ll be visiting the regional town when he returns from filming Netflix‘s smash hit Extraction in Europe.

‘Big love to all the folks in Cowra for this amazing campaign, warmed my heart and made me smile! I’m off shooting a film over seas soon but upon return next year I’m comin in hot!!’ he wrote.

‘Like many regional towns around Australia, Cowra has suffered from a lack of tourism due to COVID-19 pandemic. So when things open up be sure to check out all the amazing places Australia has to offer!’

The campaign video features two locals brainstorming how to convince the actor to visit the town.

It comes as Chris prepares to travel to Europe to film the sequel to Netflix’s smash hit Extraction.

According to Variety, production was due to begin in NSW but has moved to Prague, in the Czech Republic.

Producers reportedly made the decision to relocate to Prague over fears a single Covid case could lead to a total shutdown – which is what happened to the Russell Crowe-directed thriller Poker Face in Sydney recently.

‘Other sources put the move into a wider context, explaining that Hemsworth’s tight schedule and the growing uncertainties associated with shooting in Australia make relocation a safe choice,’ the website added.

Last July, Extraction was named Netflix’s most-watched original film of all time.

Extraction follows Tyler Rake (Hemsworth), a former SASR operator-turned-mercenary who is hired by India’s biggest drug lord to rescue his son who was kidnapped by Bangladesh’s biggest drug lord.

The film is based on the graphic novel Ciudad by Ande Parks, Fernando Leon Gonzalez, Eric Skillman, and the Russo brothers.
