A Hulk Hogan biopic is in the very early days of production. The wrestling star read a four-page treatment penned by a duo he describes as “hot young writers” and liked it so much that he told them to go ahead and write a full script. While that doesn’t mean it will necessarily end up becoming a movie, Hogan at least has a good idea of who he’d like to play a younger version of himself.
“We need a serious, serious actor that knows what he’s doing. You know who I thought would be good? That guy that did that action movie, ‘Thor,'” Hogan tells the Cape Breton Post, meaning Chris Hemsworth.
Hogan seems pretty excited about the project that these two writers are dreaming up to. According to him, they “nailed” getting his story correct “like they were living in my shoes.”
“They’ve got wrestling in their blood, they were huge Hulk Hogan fans, so they followed not only the smoke and mirrors that you see on TV, but they followed personally what I was going through: the divorce, the car accident, all the drama, the eight back surgeries, the hip replacements, the knee replacements,” he says of how they got it right.
