• Chris Hemsworth Gives An Update On The Hulk Hogan Biopic
As we reported in 2020, Netflix is working on Hulk Hogan’s biopic and the actor portraying Hogan will be Chris Hemsworth.
Below is what ET Canada reported regarding this:
“Chris Hemsworth will step into the ring as Hulk Hogan in a new biopic by ‘The Hangover’ director Todd Phillips.
Produced for Netflix, the new movie will reportedly focus on Hogan’s rise in the world of wrestling and the beginnings of Hulkamania.
The real Hulkster, Terry Bollea, will serve as a consultant on the film, and will also act as executive producer alongside Hemsworth, Phillips and Bradley Cooper.
The movie will not touch on the later years of Hogan’s life, which include a nasty divorce, his $ex tape scandal and a years-long lawsuit against Gawker Media.”
During an interview on Daily Distraction, Hemsworth gave the following update on the Hogan biopic:
“Oh that film’s a while away. It’s sort of in the development stage, you know? If it comes to fruition, great, Todd Phillips is brilliant.
I haven’t ripped any shirts off yet, but you’ll be the first to hear about it when I do.”
