David Harbour is pulling double duty for Netflix’s Stranger Things and Marvel’s Thunderbolts.
While promoting his new action movie Violent Night, David Harbour revealed that he is set to work on the new installments of two of his most prominent franchises in 2023. The final season of Netflix’s Stranger Things is heading into production around the same time as Marvel’s Thunderbolts, something that will force Harbour to work on the two projects simultaneously. Both productions are based in Atlanta, Georgia, making things a little bit easier for the actor.
“Yeah, next year is going to be a very tough year for me schedule-wise,” Harbour told Collider. “It’s going to be crazy. They are two things that I love. I love both [Red Guardian and Hopper] very much.”
“It’s going to have to be a back-and-forth with me. They’re going to have to sort of share me,” the actor continued. “And so it is kind of like, I don’t know exactly how they’re working it, but it’s a week on, week off, two weeks on, two weeks off, something like that where I would go back and forth. They both are being shot in Atlanta. That may have also been structured in a certain way, but yes, it is helpful. So I can just literally shoot a scene in Stranger Things and get in my car and run over to the Marvel scene to shoot a scene there maybe.”
David Harbour’s future
It’s great to hear that Netflix and Marvel were able to work together to allow David Harbour to return as Jim Hopper on Stranger Things and as Red Guardian on Thunderbolts. Not seeing him back as his two most popular characters would have been quite disappointing.
As expected, Stranger Things and Thunderbolts aren’t the only upcoming projects featuring David Harbour. His schedule also includes the live-action Gran Turismo movie and the HBO miniseries My Dentist’s Murder Trial.
The final season of Stranger Things does not yet have release a release date, but is expected to hit Netflix sometime in 2024. Meanwhile, Thunderbolts is currently slated to hit theaters on July 26, 2024.
