Off the ropes and into the ring. Could this be a future Chris Hemsworth venture or just a dream of one of the world's greatest champion wrestlers?
Hulk Hogan a.k.a Terry Bollea, "14-time world champion and reality star" now at the age of 60, tells the Canadian Press that he would like Hemsworth to play him in a biopic movie if one were to be made.
CP: The big headline lately is that you’re developing a movie about your life — is this true?
HH: It’s not really true. It’s a TMZ headline.... What happened was, I was going through LaGuardia Airport ... this guy asked me a bunch of dumb questions for TMZ and he goes, ’Eh, when are they going to do a bio about your life?’ And I said, ’It’s already in development.’ So now everybody’s rambling like it’s a feature film already. But 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.
CP: TMZ had asked you if your son would play you onscreen and you said that sounds like a good idea.
HH: I said he’d be perfect for it but 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).
Hemsworth already has experience playing real-life legends with his upcoming Ron Howard biopic film Rush where he plays the legendary Formula 1 race car driver James Hunt.
However, Hemsworth flying around a wrestling ring in shiny little briefs flexing his muscles while sporting a do-rag and a colorful feathered boa may be something to look forward to.
Outside of the obvious eye-candy, it could be a pretty good role playing the legendary wrestler onscreen. Outside of the flashy Hulkamainia career side of things, Hogan has had his ups and downs both professionally and personally which bodes well for an interesting story.
