Lexi Alexander To Helm Benoit Biopic “Crossface”

German director Lexi Alexander has come on board to helm the biopic “Crossface” about late wresting champ Chris Benoit.

Based on Randazzo’s book “Ring of Hell,” Benoit was a respected wrestler who murdered his wife and son before taking his own life in 2007.

He was posthumously diagnosed with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a progressive degenerative disease caused by severe or repeated blows to the head. The topic was recently tackled in last year’s Will Smith-led “Conscussion”.

Alexander will direct from a script by Jake Goldberger and Sarah Coulter while Alex A. Ginzburg and Tony Lee will produce.
