Well let me tell you something, brother! Chris Hemsworth (Thor: Ragnarok) is set to play Hulk Hogan in a bipoic directed by Todd Phillips.
“Hulkamania is running wild, Brother.”
Per THR, the 35-year-old will play the legendary wrestler, who’s real name is Terry Gene Bollea. The film will focus on Hogan’s rise in the 1980’s — it’s being described as an origin story of the Hulkster.
Phillips will reunite with writer Scott Silver, the two worked on DC’s upcoming movie The Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix. Silver will co-write the script with John Pollono (Stronger).
With the film focusing on Hogan’s rise, it will neglect his most recent scandals, like his highly publicised lawsuit that led to Gawker’s demise — Hogan sued the online publication for posting a sex tape featuring him and Heather Clem. Hogan was also fired by the WWE after a video surfaced of him making racist comments.
The Hogan biopic is in negotiations to stream on Netflix. Phillips will produce the film alongside academy award winner Michael Sugar (Spotlight), Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born) Eric Bischoff and Hemsworth. Hogan will act as a consultant on the film as well as executive producer.
