Hulk Hogan, the most popular wrestler in history, has been toying with the possibility of a movie based on his life. He’s been musing over who he wants to play him in the possible film, and he has indicated that his preferred choice would be Chris Hemsworth, star of Thor and The Avengers.
The 60-year old wrestling legend comments that, “I think we need a serious, serious actor that knows what he’s doing. You know who I thought would be good? That guy that did that action movie Thor.”
The biopic is still not a guaranteed project and even if it gets made, it could be a few years away. Hogan explains, “The truth is…two kids that are writers in L.A., hot young writers, they did a four-page treatment, and I’m telling you they nailed it — they nailed it like they were living in my shoes — and I gave them the green light to go ahead and write the first pass. But that’s all it is so far.”
He adds, “They’ve got wrestling in their blood, and they were huge Hulk Hogan fans, so they followed not only the smoke and mirrors that you see on TV, but they followed personally what I was going through: the divorce from Linda in 2009, the car accident, all the drama, the eight back surgeries, the hip replacements, the knee replacements.”
There’s been no comment from Hemsworth about whether or not he would agree to appear in a Hulk Hogan biography.
