Chris Hemsworth will undergo an “insanely physical” makeover for his next movie, a Hulk Hogan biopic.
No stranger to hitting the gym hard for his role as Thor in Marvel’s superhero flicks, Chris is planning to push his fitness even further when he stars as the famous wrestler, real name Terry Bollea.
“This movie is going to be a really fun project,” he excitedly told Total Film. “As you can imagine, the preparation for the role will be insanely physical. I will have to put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor. 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.”
His hair will also get a Hulk makeover, with the 36-year-old star adding he’ll have to dye it blonde and go a little bald, plus add a moustache to complete his trademark look.
Joker filmmaker Todd Phillips is directing the movie, which will chart Hulk’s rise to the top of the wrestling world in the ‘80s. The 66-year-old former sportsman will serve as an executive producer.
Bradley Cooper, who starred in Todd’s hit comedy The Hangover, is one of the new movie’s producers.
