HOLLYWOOD star Chris Hemsworth has admitted it’s going to be ‘insanely physical’ to get in shape to play WWE legend Hulk Hogan.
Despite famously bulking up to play Thor in eight Marvel movies, the 36-year old believes he has his work cut out for his new role.
Speaking to Total Film, Hemsworth said: “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.
“There is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude.”
Hemsworth has previously revealed how the movie will show an “unseen side of the wrestling world.”
‘FASCINATED AND INTRIGUED’
The Aussie is still waiting on the creative process to move forward since it was announced he would be playing the multi-time world champion last year.
In an interview with Screenrant, despite not receiving a script yet, the Aussie remains “fascinated” and “intrigued” by the world of pro wrestling that the movie aims to shed some light on.
He admitted, “Look, I haven’t read a script yet.
“I know it’s being written now and worked on. I know very little about that. It’s sort of in the process now.”
