Default Director Hired for Chris Benoit Movie

uk.ign.com/articles/2013/07/22/director-hired-for-chris-benoit-movie
(I don't even have 10 posts so I can't post the direct link)

Quote:
Filmmaker Vicente Amorim (Good) is set to direct Crossface, SRG Films' feature film adaptation of Matthew Randazzo's book Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry.

The movie, according to a past press release, "delves into the pressures WWE superstar Chris Benoit faced throughout his wrestling career as the combination of drug-use, depression, and head trauma became increasingly impossible for him to handle. The true story made headline news in 2007 when Chris murdered his wife and young son before taking his own life."

“Wrestling is showbiz taken to the extreme and Crossface is Limelight on steroids,” Amorim told Deadline. “Chris Benoit’s story is the perfect vehicle for a fiercely honest film that is as much about him and the world of wrestling as it is about America and show business. I am very happy to be on board to help tell this story.”
I haven't seen this posted yet so apologies if it already has.

I'd like to see Tim Burton do a Benoit movie. Now that would be entertaining.

Benoit would be resurrected by cats at the end.

Fuck this. The wrestling world does not need to go through that again.

Is this movie just going to be like 'The Wrestler', except he kills his family at the end?

Except probably a lot worse with actors you've never heard of. Also, they won't be able to use the WCW or WWE logos, so it's gonna look real hokey if they show any wrestling scenes.
