Vicente Amorim ("Good," "Dirty Hearts") is set to direct "Crossface," the biopic of WWE superstar Chris Benoit, for SRG Films.

The story is an adaptation of the Matthew Randazzo book "Ring Of Hell" and chronicles the pressures that Benoit faced during his wrestling career.

Drug-use, depression, and a head trauma drove Benoit to murder his wife and son before taking his own life. Sarah Coulter penned the script and filming begins next year.
