Have you been dying to see Hulk Hogan's life story told on the big screen? Never fear, wrestling fans -- the Hulkster has got you covered.

In an interview with The Canadian Press to promote an upcoming appearance in Toronto, Hogan revealed that there's a biopic about him in the works, and while the film isn't a done deal yet, he knows exactly who he wants to play him.

"I think we need a serious, serious actor that knows what he's doing," Hogan said. "You know who I thought would be good? That guy that did that action movie, 'Thor.'"

While Chris Hemsworth probably isn't too thrilled that Hogan couldn't remember his name, playing the mustachioed Wrestlemania star would certainly be in his wheelhouse. Hemsworth's action-heavy filmography has already prepared him physically for the role, but how might he handle the Hulk's more drama-filled life experiences? Hogan has never been one to shy away from the spotlight -- his Toronto stop is part of his "Uncensored" tour, where audiences can ask him about his personal life -- and it sounds like this biopic will feature similarly revealing stories.

"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," Hogan said. " ... They've got wrestling in their blood, they were huge Hulk Hogan fans, so they followed not only the smoke and mirrors that you see on TV, but they followed personally what I was going through: the divorce, the car accident, all the drama, the eight back surgeries, the hip replacements, the knee replacements."

Sounds juicy. Here's hoping Hemsworth wants to step into the ring.
