2. Untitled Hulk Hogan Biopic
Chris Hemsworth is set to play the wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan in the upcoming untitled biopic. The movie is directed by Todd Phillips, who is known for ‘The Hangover‘ franchise and the upcoming DC Comics flick ‘Joker,’ starring Joaquin Phoenix. John Pollono and Scott Silver wrote the script for the Hulk biopic. One of the most famous names in the history of wrestling, Hogan shot to fame with his lightning moves gimmicks in television matches in the ’80s. His legacy spans across several movies, television shows, endorsements, and video games. Hogan’s later career was tainted by a sex tape scandal that involved a year-long legal battle to prove his innocence.
According to THR, the biopic won’t dig deep into such controversies in Hogan’s life. Instead, it will emphasize more in the formation days of the Hulkster. Described as an origin story of the wrestling legend, the movie is produced by Hemsworth along with Michael Sugar for Netflix-based Sugar23, Phillips and Bradley Cooper for their banner Joint Effort and Eric Bischoff. Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman co-produce the project. Hogan, whose birth name is Terry Gene Bollea, also joins the project as a consultant and an executive producer. When asked about Hemsworth playing him in the biopic, Hogan said in a 2013 interview, “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.” The biopic, which is in the early stages of development, will start rolling soon.
