Successful Hollywood actor Chris Hemsworth is scheduled to take on the role of the WWE’s “Real American” Hulk Hogan. Hemsworth talked about the role.
Avengers actor Chris Hemsworth is scheduled to play Hulk Hogan in biopic about the WWE superstar. In a recent interview, Hemsworth speaks out about the role that’s in the scripting stage right now. In 2013, Hulk Hogan was asked who he would like to see portray him in a movie. Hulk named Chris Hemsworth, who he loved after watching the 2011 film ” Thor “. There is a lot to look forward to for Hulk Hogan fans. The biopic covers Hogan’s wrestling career in the 80’s as he made his name and climbed to the top of the wrestling industry. It will also delve into his lawsuit against Gawker.
While Hemsworth is looking forward to the role, he also mentioned that the biopic is still being written. So, while he cannot wait to portray Hulk Hogan, not even Chris Hemsworth knows a lot about the nature of the script. Netflix has the exclusive life rights to the story and Hogan, real name Terry Gene Bollea, will consult. The biopic on WWE Hall of Famer is being helmed by Joker director Todd Phillips.
Since Chris Hemsworth will play Hulk Hogan in his next biopic, I have no doubt that the WWE will try to capitalize on that success. While the company avoided working with Hulk Hogan for years, I am sure we will see an increase in his appearances when the film releases. Just like Hogan, World Wrestling Entertainment encountered lots of legal issues lately. Many fans also turned against the promotion after unnecessarily firing numerous wrestlers and other staff during the COVID-19 crisis.The biopic on Hulk Hogan might be what he needs to counter some of the controversy that plagued his career. So, let’s wait and see what the people in Hollywood deliver.
