The ‘Thor’ star would play the role of Hulk Hogan in an upcoming biopic directed by the ‘Joker’ filmmaker. Meanwhile, Netflix has acquired special release rights for the movie to set the stage for a big-budget picture.
Chronicling the journey
The film would depict the transitional journey of the legend wrestler dating back to the ’80s and ’90s that paved the way for WWE to become an influential global factor. Hogan played a significant role in taking the professional sport from small spheres to the TV screen, attracting fans during prime time.
Eyeing the mission
To trace the champion’s victory, Chris Hemsworth’s task would be simply challenging altogether. Besides playing the character of Hulk Hogan, he will also be responsible to project the real-life Terry Eugene Bollea, displaying every shade of the contender.
Striking the reality
Chris Hemsworth in an interview about the masterpiece with Total Film addressed his challenge in an enthusiastic note saying, “This movie is going to be a really fun project.”
Then he explained, “As you can imagine, the preparation for the role will be insanely physical. I will have to put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor. There is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude.” While considered as a whole, the role would cover up every aspect of the legend on the big screen without missing on a particular shade. We can already imagine the weightage of such a task!
Later on, Hemsworth added, “I will also have to do a deep dive into the rabbit hole of the wrestling world, which I’m really looking forward to doing”. The gap in upholding the struggle of the professional wrestling world would be overcome with the film hitting the theatres in the next days. Till then, the fandom is strongly appreciating the actor’s will for the role!
