Tom Hiddleston's next film has been put on hold

Tom Hiddleston has revealed his next film project has been put on hold after co-star Anna Paquin became a mum.

The star of Thor and War Horse is due to play a criminal who attempts to stage an armed robber with a call girl, due to be played by Anna, in crime thriller Black Wings Has My Angel.

But True Blood star Anna gave birth to twins last month.

Tom said: "Black Wings Has My Angel is based on a novel by Elliott Chaze, it's a sort of noir thriller. It's a great script. I signed onto it a long, long time ago.

"Anna Paquin was going to play opposite me, she's had a baby, so being a mum is much more important than being whatever that low life character is.

"It was a sort of fun noir thing, but it's way, way off in the future.

"It's just Thor 2 at the moment."

The Avengers Assemble star will reprise his role as villain Loki in the Marvel movie.
