Ufc Fighter Evan Tanner Gets A Biopic

Producers Christopher Scheimann and Olcun Tan are teaming with sports director Bobby Razak (“Right of Passage,” “Mask”) for the biopic feature “The Power of 1” about the life of UFC fighter Evan Tanner.

Tanner, a pioneer in the sport and winner of the UFC’s middleweight title in 2005, died under tragic circumstances in 2008 while on a solo expedition deep into the California desert.

Tanner taught himself to fight at a championship level via instructional videotapes, and went on to revolutionize the sport with his innovative approach.

Scheimann and Razak co-wrote the script with filming to begin early next year.
