Chris Hemsworth, best known for his role as Thor, will play Hulk Hogan in a biopic for Netflix.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, former WCW head Eric Bischoff is one of the producers along with Michael Sugar, Todd Phillips, and Bradley Cooper. Phillips, who recently completed DC Comics’ The Joker, will be directing the flick.
Reports suggest the movie will focus on Terry Bollea’s transformation into the Hulkster and the rise of Hulkamania in the 80s. The controversy over racial comments he made and the legal fight against Gawker for releasing his sex tape will not be the focus.
THR says the deal for the movie is still in its final stages. Bolea will likely be a consultant.
Hemsworth recently made headlines for showing off his pythons on the beach, but they weren’t close to 24-inches at this point. Looks like he’ll have to start saying a few more prayers and taking a few more vitamins before donning the red and yellow, brother!
