Wrestling Film „ Iron Claw“ wird Ende des Jahres in den USA veröffentlicht

  • The Von Erich family story will be told in an upcoming film and it will star Zac Efron. Deadline is reporting that Efron will join writer-director Sean Durkin for the filming of “Iron Claw” with A24 producing and financing the project. The announcement describes the film’s plot as follows:

    “Based on the true story of the Von Erichs, the film follows the rise and fall of the Von Erich family, a dynasty of wrestlers who made a huge impact on the sport from the 1960s to the present day.”

    The Von Erich family history is certainly a tragic story fit for a film drama.

  • Ich denke das wird gut und man wird sich auch an 'The Wrestler' ein wenig orientieren. Das Thema gibt ja nun mal keine Komödie her.

    Da der o.g. Film aber allgemein das Thema Altstars bzw das Klischee ein Wrestlers anpackt und die Von Erichs doch recht konkrete Namen von vor x Dekaden sind, habe ich ein wenig Bedenken, ob man hierfür ein so breites Publikum erreicht.


    ..ich bin gespannt auf das Ergebnis.

  • MJF übernimmt auch eine Rolle.

    Edit: MJF spielt Lance Von Erich

  • Gibt etwas mehr Informationen zu Lance von Erich von Wrestling Inc.

    ------

    AEW star MJF will be making his film debut in "The Iron Claw" as Kevin Vaughan, the 1980s wrestler who was briefly passed off as a cousin of the Von Erich wrestling clan


    When Mike Von Erich was hospitalized in 1985 with toxic shock syndrome, World Class Championship Wrestling booker and referee David Manning recruited Vaughan as a replacement and named him Lance Von Erich. According to a 1988 story in D Magazine, Vaughan's charade did not fool many loyal Von Erich fans, and his wrestling skills were subpar to those of the Von Erichs. Vaughan quit after patriarch and WCCW owner Fritz Von Erich refused his request for more money. He would later wrestle under the names Fabulous Lance and Handsome Lance. He recalled his career in the autobiography "Lance by Chance: Wrestling as a Von Erich."


    Deadline reported that MJF was cast in "The Iron Claw," and PWInsider.com confirmed MJF's casting as Vaughan and determined that his absence from AEW's Full Gear pay-per-view was due to his role in the film, which is now in production.


    "Iron Claw" will be MJF's first film role. He is the second wrestler cast in the film, as Chavo Guerrero Jr. also has a role and is doing double-duty as a wrestling coordinator. The Von Erichs are being played by Zac Efron as Kevin, Jeremy Allen White as Kerry, Harris Dickinson as David, Holt McCallany as Fritz, and Stanley Simons as Mike. The film is being produced by A24, with Sean Durkin directing from his screenplay.

    Gibt bei YouTube das Match Lance von Erich gegen Dingo Warrior. ;)

  • Actor Zac Efron has been channeling his inner wrestler for "The Iron Claw." In the biopic of the Von Erich family, Efron plays Kevin Von Erich, and he arrived on set impressing others with his physique to truly embody the role.


    As Wrestling Inc. reported back in October, Chavo Guerrero is the wrestling coordinator for the film and is also slated for a yet-to-be-revealed role, and while speaking to Wrestling Inc. Senior News Editor Nick Hausman, Guerrero had nothing but praise for Efron's commitment to the part.


    "Zac is awesome," Guerrero said. "He's a machine. You can tell. You look at his body, the guy doesn't stop. He's a machine. He's going to really surprise a lot of people. I can't talk too much about it, but he's going to surprise a lot of people. He's a guy that brings it every single time."


    Guerrero also shared his thoughts on whether or not Efron could get interested in having an actual match for a promotion such as WWE or AEW one day. "You know what? I don't know," Guerrero admitted. "He'd have to answer that one, to be honest. Acting and pro wrestling, it's a little ... It's the same and different in a lot of ways ... Any project I do, you're not just training somebody ... I'm not training somebody to work at WrestleMania. I'm training them to look like they are working WrestleMania in the scene."


    Guerrero went on to say that there are some who are able to hit their stride in training so much so that they feel confident about having an actual wrestling match. He also said there's something to performers trying ventures they haven't dived into yet.
