Chris Hemsworth will shortly return to our screens in Love and Thunder as Thor. But he also has other projects on the way. One of the films that excite us is the Hulk Hogan biopic, with Chris Hemsworth portraying the well-known wrestler who later became an actor and reality TV star, and Todd Phillips, the director of The Joker. Sadly, it appears like the release for that one may delay. Since Hemsworth just acknowledged that production on the movie hasn’t truly begun yet.
Chris Hemsworth Shared Updates About The Film:
The Hulk Hogan project was initially revealed in 2019, and Chris Hemsworth is the sole actor currently involved. However, Hemsworth just gave an update on the upcoming biography, and regrettably, it looks like we might have to wait a bit. It will take some time before that movie is out, he stated. You know, it’s kind of in the development stage; if it materializes, it would be fantastic. Todd Phillips is an excellent director. I haven’t worn any clothes off yet, but when I do, you’ll be the first to know.”
About The Film:
Todd Phillips, who directed the Joker, will direct the Hulk Hogan biopic. Although not much has been officially stated, it anticipate the film would trace The Hulkster’s ascent through the 1980s wrestling levels. It is probably discussing the outbreak of Hulkamania during the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Era in the WWF. Other sports legends, like Roddy Piper, King Kong Bundy, Andre The Giant, Randy Savage, The Ultimate Warrior, and Sgt. Slaughter may also portray in the film.
Hulk Hogan Has Praised the Chris Hemsworth Casting
The legendary wrestler himself has praised the casting of the Thor actor. However, it is still unclear when or even if we will ever see Chris Hemsworth go into the ring as Hulk Hogan. In response to a picture of Hemsworth doing one of his signature exercises. The Hulkster wrote, “My brother has that Hogan Pump on Jack, seems like he could smack Andre, brother.”
Hemsworth’s Preparation For The Movie:
Speaking of physical preparation, Hemsworth hinted at the extensive amount needed to play Hulk Hogan. And saying that he would need to “put on more size than he has ever put on, even more than he put on for Thor.” Additionally, the biopic will put Hemsworth’s acting and bench-pressing skills to the test more than ever before. And then there’s the dialect, the physique, and the attitude, he continued. I’ll also have to take a deep dive down the wrestling world’s rabbit hole, which I’m quite eager to do.
