When I was younger I loved tuning into WWF’s (now WWE) Monday Night Raw. I know people still that enjoy it on some level and I even attended the live show once after my interest was gone. In 2007 a headline that rang across the internet was the mental breakdown of the organizations popular personalities, Chris Benoit.
I guess it was only a matter of time, but the tragic story is getting set to make its way to the big screen from an adaptation of the book Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry. The film will be titled CROSSFACE and will also cover the trials and tribulations that wrestling superstars endure doing what they do in their profession. The film is being developed by SRG and a script has already been turned in by Sarah Coulter. Talks have begun for cast and crew but no speculation yet as to what names are being considered.
Are you familiar with the Chris Benoit story? If so what are your thoughts on the possibility of a film based on it?
