Chris Hemsworth is bringing Hulkamania to Netflix so you better “Eat your vitamins and say your prayers.”

The film, directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover trilogy), will follow the Hulk’s wrestling career from his early start the 1970s into his dominance in the 80s with the WWF (World Wrestling Federation) when the craze of “Hulkamania” was born.

THR reports that the film will not  cover Hogan’s entire life, including his later years or the scandals he faced with his sex tape. The movie will be about his formation into Hulk Hogan—his real name is Terry Bollea—and the rise of Hulkamania.
