In February 2019 is was announced that Chris Hemsworth would play the role of Hulk Hogan for an upcoming biopic.
Details regarding the film remain scarce, but Hemsworth is ready to take on the role of Hogan.
"I will have to put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor, and then there is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude. I will also have to do a deep dive into the rabbit hole of the wrestling world, which I'm really looking forward to doing. I'm going to be blonde, probably balding and with a 'tache. It's going to be fun to see," Hemsworth told Total Film.
In April, Hemsworth revealed that he had yet to see a script for the film. That remains the case in July.
"I haven't even seen a script yet. The project is deep in development. Todd Phillips and I met to chat about it maybe a year or two ago. We talked about the idea for the film, which I think was going to be a TV series at one point. There were a few different ideas about what portion of his life it was going to be set in, so we spitballed about what it could be and what I thought it might be. Thankfully, they ran with a few of those ideas and the script is in the process of being written - but Hulk Hogan is still quite a way away," he said.
The movie will reportedly focus on the origin of Hulkamania and won't dive into Hogan's racist comments that came to light in 2015. Eric Bischoff was named as one of the producers and Todd Phillips, Scott Silver, and John Pollono are reportedly set to co-write the film.
The film will premiere on Netflix.
