Hemsworth will portray professional wrestler Hulk Hogan in a forthcoming biopic. The movie will be directed by Todd Phillips, who worked on A Star Is Born. The script will be co-written by John Pollono and Scott Silver. Phillips and Silver both worked together on the upcoming Joker movie.

Slated to appear on Netflix, this biopic will begin shooting later this year. Wrestling fans are excited to see who’ll they’ll cast as some of Hogan’s most important allies and enemies. Fans expect to see people like late announcer “Mean” Gene Okerlund, who was very crucial in Hogan’s career.
