Hulk Hogan Biopic In The Works Starring Chris Hemsworth

Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips

The biopic, which is also being produced by the likes of Bradley Cooper and Eric Bischoff among others, will veer away from any of the recent controversies surrounding Hogan, instead choosing to focus exclusively on the, "origin story of the Hulkster and Hulkamania". "Also producing will be Hemsworth and Eric Bischoff".

Bosslogic has unveiled new fan art that imagines what Avengers star Chris Hemsworth might look like as Hulk Hogan.

After helping pivot WWF (now WWE) to wild popularity in the early 80s and 90s, video gaming and entertainment media site IGN has noted Hogan as "the most recognized wrestling star worldwide and the most popular wrestler of the 1980s".

THR reports that the biopic will not dip into some of the negative stories that have followed him in recent years but it will focus on Hogan's rise.

Hemsworth will next be seen reprising his role as Thor in Avengers: Endgame and in Men in Black: International.

He became perhaps the biggest star in WWE's five-decade history.

The film is reportedly close to finalizing a deal with Netflix to get a release on the streaming service. Hogan himself will be acting as a consultant and an executive producer.

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.

Chris Hemsworth plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he's taking on the Hulk for his next role.

Bradley Cooper has signed on to be a producer on the film with Todd Phillips directing the flick.

According to the Toronto Cape Breton Post, Hogan said, "We need a serious, serious actor that knows what he's know who I thought would be good?"

WWE superstar Rusev volunteered himself to star in the film with Hemsworth. Do you think he'll be able to accurately portray the Hulkster? The videotape shows that Hogan lifted the 7-foot-4, 525-pound André over his head and slammed him into the mat to win the match, brother.

Of course, the past several years have found Hulk Hogan mired in public scandals, including a sex tape which ended his marriage and several endorsements, as well as incidents with his son Nick driving while intoxicated.
