Wrestler Hulk Hogan already knows whom he wants to star in the proposed biopic of his life.
“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” (Chris Hemsworth).”
Asked about the status of the film, Hogan says most of the talk about the film in the trades is purely made up. Right now, the project is just a pipe dream:
“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.”
He goes on to praise the treatment and its unflinching coverage of his life:
“First off, they’ve got wrestling in their blood, 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, the car accident, all the drama, the eight back surgeries, the hip replacements, the knee replacements.”
