The film will reportedly focus on Hogan’s early life and career, including the rise of Hulkamania in WWE. Hemsworth has spoken at length about the preparation he has been doing for the role, which has required him to gave more size than even his work as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The movie will release on Netflix with Joker director Todd Phillips at the helm. Hogan and Eric Bischoff are also listed as executive producers on the film. The last update provided on the movie was that it was still being written back in April.
Hogan, of course, last wrestled for TNA Wrestling in 2012. As far as WWE goes, his last match with the company was at SummerSlam 2006 against Randy Orton while he does make sporadic appearances to this day.
