Kevin Connolly (“Entourage”) is developing a biopic about Kimbo Slice, a street fighter who became a YouTube sensation and eventually ended up a UFC star.
Connolly tells The Wrap that “I’m trying to get the Kimbo Slice story made. I have his life rights, we have a script that’s great. It’s out and about, and the powers that be are trying to put the money together.”
Connolly will direct and Kimbo is expected to play himself in the film which will follow his unlikely road to success.
