Variety is reporting that Rene Russo has been cast a Firgga, the mother of Thor, in the upcoming Kenneth Branagh movie that begins shooting next month.

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.
