WWE Studios’ Gorgeous George movie finds scriptwriters

Variety is reporting that Josh Gad and Ryan Dixon will be writing the Gorgeous George biopic script for WWE Studios.

The movie is tentatively simply titled “Gorgeous George” and it will chronicle the life and career of George Raymond Wagner, the man behind the gimmick of Gorgeous George.

“Gorgeous George was a true pioneer in television,” said Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios. “Josh is a true talent and we are thrilled to see him and Ryan tackle such a groundbreaking story.” WWE Studios will handle worldwide rights and will use WWE’s platforms, including weekly TV shows, digital and social media and the WWE Network, to market this title.

Gad, who is also an actor, recently wrapped production on the Disney film “Beauty And The Beast” opposite Emma Watson and Luke Evans.
