Movie website Comingsoon.net is reporting that SRG Films spilled the beans about their plans for a Chris Benoit movie based on Matthew Randazzo's book titled 'Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry.'
The working title of the movie is 'Crossface' and SRG Films head Dale Alexander Carnegie is producing the film while William Morris Endeavor will be in charge to package the project. A first draft of the script was turned in two months ago and there are ongoing talks with directors and actors to see who will play each role with filming starting in fall 2012.
"All of us grow up believing that wrestling is fake, but looking at the shocking number of deaths in the industry, it quickly becomes evident that there is nothing fake about the dangers of this sport," Carnegie said.
"Chris Benoit has become a poster child for everything that's wrong with professional wrestling and Sarah's terrific script captures his struggles and the many factors that led to the deaths of three people."
