HOLLYWOOD (WMC) - Actor Chris Hemsworth has been tabbed to play wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan in an upcoming biopic.

The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday. WWE also made an announcement on the film.

The movie will follow Hulk Hogan through his rise as a WWE (the-WWF) superstar in the 1980s.

The movie will reportedly premiere on Netflix.

Hemsworth is best known as his role as Thor in Marvel films.
