Chris Hemsworth has a lot of intense training ahead for the biopic in which he will play Hulk Hogan. Chris Hemsworth was cast as Hulk Hogan in February of this year and he talked about the role with Balance Magazine.
“I will need a lot of time to prepare for this role because of the physical requirements. And this is something you can’t do without total commitment but it will be very fun. The transformation will be remarkable and i can’t wait to see what happens” Chris Hemsworth said about the role.
Chris Hemsworth also explained how the project came to be: ” I kept talking to Todd Phillips about the project. It was his idea and it was supposed to be a TV series. But we came up with new ideas and became excited with what can be done. The script of the movie is not ready yet, its still in the works, we’re in a preliminary phase of the project”
Scott Silver ( 8 Mile, The Fighter, Joker ) will write the script of the movie that will tell the story of Hulk Hogan. Even Hulk Hogan thought Chris Hemsworth is the right choice to play him in a biographic movie as he said in a 2013 interview: ” We need a serious actor who knows what he’s doing. Do you know who might be right ? That guy from the action movie Thor” Hulk Hogan said six years ago.
