The 32-year-old 'Thor' star, who plays receptionist Kevin in the film, said he couldn't keep a straight face because his co-stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon were funny in their improvisations, reported Femalefirst.

"There's some nice role reversal there and I'm such a fan of those women. During shooting I spent more time cracking up and trying to keep a straight face, and there'll be more outtakes from that than anything else I've ever made.

"This is highly improvised work - they just kept the camera rolling for hours," Hemsworth said.

The actor was initially opposed to the idea of a remake of the 80s classic, but when he came to know about the gender role-reversal, he couldn't stop but say yes to the proposal.

"When I heard they were doing a male 'Ghostbusters' I thought, 'No they can't do that, it's sacrilegious, it can't be remade.'

"Then when I heard it was being done with a different spin and a female cast, I knew it was going to be something unique. So when I was offered it, I immediately thought, 'Awesome'," he said.
