Thor to Play Hulk Hogan for Netflix, Brother!

The Hollywood Reporter:

Chris Hemsworth is set to portray wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan in a biopic that reunites Todd Phillips with Scott Silver, the respective director and writer of the upcoming DC Comics movie The Joker. John Pollono (Stronger) will co-write the script with Silver.

Surreal.

Sadly, this is apparently not supposed to touch on any of the interesting phases of Hogan’s life, such as his 90’s bad guy run, or the sex tape scandal/suing of Gawker.

Also weird? This is being produced by Eric Bischoff.

AW SHIT! The Lonely Island Are Going on Their First Ever Tour!

Stereogum:

The Lonely Island had their first proper concerts last year, and the comedy trio are building on that momentum with their first-ever tour, which will take place after their already-announced Bonnaroo set in June. The dates will take them to some major East Coast cities and then out to the Midwest. Tickets for the tour go on sale 3/1 at 10AM local time.

I may need to check out that DC date in June.

Apple Looking to Combine iPhone, iPad and Mac Apps By 2021

Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. wants to make it easier for software coders to create tools, games and other applications for its main devices in one fell swoop — an overhaul designed to encourage app development and, ultimately, boost revenue.

The ultimate goal of the multistep initiative, code-named “Marzipan,” is by 2021 to help developers build an app once and have it work on the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers, said people familiar with the effort. That should spur the creation of new software, increasing the utility of the company’s gadgets.

Sounds dope to me!

THE BANANA SPLITS To Return…As A Horror Franchise?

ComingSoon:

It’s not April 1st just yet, but Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and SYFY have announced that the cult kids program The Banana Splits will return as an original movie …but with a horror twist. The film will bring back the classic characters first introduced to audiences in 1968 with The Banana Splits Adventure Hour variety program.

In the upcoming horror thriller, a boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth and father Mitch) attend a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?

I’m not wrong, that’s basically the plot of Five Nights at Freddie’s, right?
