"Look, I haven't read a script yet. I know it's being written now and worked on. I know very little about that. It's sort of in the process now. I'm just fascinated by that world, and I think they're pretty keen to show a side of the world that people haven't seen before. I'm as intrigued as you are," he said.

Details surrounding the movie have been scarce to this point, but 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 Hollywood Reporter reports that "deals for the Hogan project are in the midst of closing with Netflix." Michael Sugar and Bradley Cooper, along with Hemsworth, were also named as producers.
