21 Feb - With his towering figure and well-toned physique, it seems like a no-brainer for Chris Hemsworth to be cast as Hulk Hogan in the latter's upcoming biopic.
The actor will be starring as the retired pro-wrestler in the movie helmed by Oscar-nominated director, Todd Phillips, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Hogan, who is turning 66-year-old this year (side fun fact: both Hemsworth and Hogan are born on 11 August, 30 years apart), begun his wrestling career in the late '70s. He became a wrestling icon in the '80s, rising to international fame during his time in Vince McMahon's WWF.
Apart from acting in it, Hemsworth will also be producing alongside Michael Sugar ("Spotlight"), as well as Bradley Cooper and Phillips under their Joint Effort banner, and professional wrestling booker Eric Bischoff.
Phillips reteams with Scott Silver ("The Joker"), who is penning the Hulk biopic.
While fans wait to see Hemsworth's transformation into the Hulkster, they can first catch him in this year's "Avengers: Endgame", "Men in Black: International" and "Dhaka".
