SRG Films have announced plans to adapt a biopic based on Matthew Randazzo’s book “Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry”.
Entitled “Crossface”, the thriller explores the pressures WWE superstar Chris Benoit faced throughout his wrestling career. A combination of drug-use, depression, and head trauma made him increasingly impossible to handle and ultimately lead to Benoit killing his wife and young son before taking his own life.
Sarah Coulter turned in a first draft in mid-October. Dale Alexander Carnegie is producing and shooting will begin next Fall.
