 Story of Wrestler Chris Benoit Heading to Theaters in 'Crossface'

Back in 2007, a shocking and truly tragic news story made headlines when professional wrestler Chris Benoit murdered his wife and 7-year old son before hanging himself. Now the story of the troubled wrestling star is heading to the big screen as Deadline reports SRG Films is developing Crossface, a film based on Matthew Randazzo V's book Ring Of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry. The film will follow Benoit's life in the WWE, the struggles he endured and how the combination of drug use, depression and head trauma led him to become a ticking time bomb of instability.

The chronicle of a troubled wrestler was most recently seen in the aptly titled film The Wrestler, but with this tale (being adapted by first-time writer Sarah Coulter) being true to life and following the tragedy of a man affected by his career to the point that he lost his mind, it's a wholly different kind of drama. SRG Films head Dale Alexander Carnegie says, "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. People immediately point to steroids, never thinking about the brain trauma these wrestlers can and do incur in their profession, nor do they consider the rigorous schedule that keeps them working even when they shouldn’t.” Sounds like quite an expose that could paint the WWE in an unfavorable light if funding comes together to get the project off the ground.

Very sad story about my favorite wrestler. If the movie will point towards concussions and brain damage, I'm all for it. If it just vilifies Benoit and paints a black eye on wrestling, it can suck a d!ck.

they arent gonna show what happens that night..it will probably end right before he does it.

no one knows the real story, so it would be retarded to speculate.
