Actor Chris Hemsworth is set to star as worldwide wrestling star Hulk Hogan in an upcoming Netflix biopic.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hemsworth will play Hogan in a biopic centered on the wrestler’s origins and rise. The movie will be directed by The Joker‘s Todd Phillips, with a script from 8 Mile‘s Scott Silver. Bradley Cooper will co-produce the film alongside Phillips, Hemsworth and former World Championship Wrestling President Eric Bischoff. Netflix and the production are reportedly in the closing stages of a deal to bring the film to that streaming platform.

Naturally, the internet went wild with their responses. Among those reactions was Evans, who took to Twitter to share his thoughts: “This might be the best news I’ve ever heard.”
