Chris Hemsworth is already jacked as hell, but he may want to venture into swole territory for his latest role. Hemsworth is slated to play Hulk Hogan in an upcoming biopic, according to an exclusive report by The Hollywood Reporter. The film about the famous wrestler's life will be directed by Todd Phillips and written by Scott Silver -- the same duo behind 2019's The Joker. THR reports that production is working out a deal with Netflix, so get ready to stream this baby from the comfort of your home. Hulk Hogan -- real name Terry Bollea -- is an iconic former professional wrestler and twelve-time world champion in the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) and World Championship Wrestling. He was known for his famous leg drop, which entailed jumping onto an opponent and landing with his leg on their face, like this: It's oddly entrancing to watch! In recent years, Hogan's name has come up less in the context of wrestling, and more in the context of his sex tape scandal and an ensuing lawsuit with the website Gawker. According to THR: "The biopic will not delve into those years or attempt to encompass an entire life. Instead sources say it will focus on the Hogan's rise and is described as an origin story of the Hulkster and Hulkamania." THR didn't specify a release date for the Hogan biopic, but we're already curious to see how Hemsworth looks when he swaps his Thor helmet for Hogan's signature bandana and blond locks. Hey, Hemsworth: time to grow out that 'stache again.
