Sanjay is right. Both are grammatically correct.  The first -- will go -- is in the future tense and definately means the job has not begun.  The second is technically in the present, but can also be used to indicate future prospects.

Over the course of the first season, some of his friends discover their own powers which are somehow awakened because of proximity to Ichigo. The costume from Ichigo Kurosaki is attractive for male cosplayers with matched Bleach Cosplay Wig.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/radio/specials/1837_aae/page4.shtmlHave a look at this page from the BBC World Service Learning English page. It is normal to use the present tense with the verb "hope". However, both are possible, but not always interchangeable. If you always use the present tense as native speakers do, then you won't have any problems.
