Hulk Hogan Gawker

Hulk Hogan may be coming back to the big screen – not as the latest member of the next Expendables cast, but played by another actor in a dramatic retelling of the most talked-about chapter of Hogan’s life.

It’s a tale as old as time: boy becomes internationally famous wrestling superstar, boy films sexual encounter with friend’s wife, website gets ahold of sex tape and publishes it without boy’s permission, and boy sues website into oblivion with the help of a wealthy venture capitalist with an axe to grind against website. You know, that old gem.

The Hulk Hogan Gawker story has already been covered in depth in a Netflix documentary, and there’s also a potential limited series about it that’s currently in the works. But that’s not stopping a director on Modern Family from stepping behind the camera on a separate movie version of the story.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Odds are if you’re a male between the ages of 20 and 40, you have a soft spot in your heart for Hulk Hogan. In the ’80s and ’90s, Hogan was everywhere, quickly becoming one of the most famous people in the world as he ascended the ladder of professional wrestling. The superstardom lead to cartoon shows, movie roles and so much more.

In recent years though, Hogan has fallen from grace, becoming a tabloid mainstay due to his messy public divorce, issues with his kids, a reality show and most recently a sex tape. But Hogan hasn’t shied away from the spotlight. Instead he’s embraced it, doing a national press tour in the midst of one controversy and thereby inciting another.

One of the stops on Hogan’s tour was The Howard Stern Show. While there he not only said he wanted a role in The Expendables 3, but that director Darren Aronofsky offered him the lead in The Wrestler. Aronofsky quickly took to Twitter to deny Hogan’s claims. Why would Hogan lie? Read some quotes and hear the audio after the jump. Read More »
