Chris Hemsworth to play wrestling legend Hulk Hogan in biopic

Chris Hemsworth Is Set To Play Hulk Hogan In A Biopic Yes Really

According to the Hollywood Reporter, actor Chris Hemsworth has been chosen to play the role of iconic wrestling legend Hulk Hogan in a biopic, which is still in its early stages of development at Netflix. Producing will be Michael Sugar, the Academy Award victor behind "Spotlight", who will produce via his Netflix-based Sugar23, and Phillips and Bradley Cooper, who will produce via their banner Joint Effort. He will also be an executive producer on the film. The biopic is said to center on the rise of Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, and his "Hulkamania" both in wrestling and as a pop culture icon.

Wrestling fans questioned the news that the Thor actor will be playing the Hulkster, with most believing Hemsworth is an odd choice for the role.

"I think many of us are on the same page when we say 'f- that Chris Hemsworth Hulk Hogan movie", tweeted another.

He became perhaps the biggest star in WWE's five-decade history. The site adds that a deal is "in the midst of closing" with Netflix.

The idea of trading for Brown might be nice for the Bears, but the logistics of the deal make it extremely unlikely . Rumors have been swirling for months surrounding disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown .

Look, Hemsworth certainly has the body to play Hogan - whether he can nail the distinctive speech patterns or the swagger is another question entirely.

Todd Phillips ("The Hangover") will direct the film.

"I knew that this was a guy that people love and people relate to for whatever reasons", Abdul-Mateen II told Comicbook".

The film sees Phillips again team up with Scott Silver, the writer who's now working with The Hangover director on the Joker origin film. By the end of the 1980s, he was a huge star, appearing on magazine covers, TV chat shows and he was even the face of a cartoon on Saturday morning TV.
