The project is expected to deal with the formative years of Hogan's ascent into fame, starting with the Florida wrestling circuit in the late 1970s and becoming the face of the World Wrestling Federation during the 1980s. Todd Phillips, whose credits include "War Dogs" and "The Hangover" trilogy, is attached to direct from a script by the writing team of Scott Silver and John Pollono.
