Hollywood actor Chris Hemsworth spoke with Total Film about the upcoming Hulk Hogan biopic with writer/director Todd Phillips, where Hemsworth will be portraying the Immortal One. Highlights are below.
Says he will have to put on size and explore the world of wrestling:
I will have to put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor, and then there is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude. 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. I’m going to be blonde, probably balding and with a ‘tache. It’s going to be fun to see.
Still hasn’t seen a script for the film:
I haven’t even seen a script yet. The project is deep in development. Todd Phillips and I met to chat about it maybe a year or two ago. We talked about the idea for the film, which I think was going to be a TV series at one point. There were a few different ideas about what portion of his life it was going to be set in, so we spitballed about what it could be and what I thought it might be. Thankfully, they ran with a few of those ideas and the script is in the process of being written – but Hulk Hogan is still quite a way away.
