The movie, which will be directed by Joker‘s Todd Phillips, is set to tell the story of Hulk’s rise to fame.

“This movie is going to be a really fun project. 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,” he revealed.

“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.”

He also said it’s “going to be fun to see” himself in Hulk‘s iconic moustache.

“I’m going to be blonde, probably balding and with a ‘tache.”

“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,” he went on to say.

He’s also going to star in this anticipated sequel!
