We recently heard about "Crossface," a movie about WWE wrestler Chris Benoit, who murdered his wife and seven-year-old son before committing suicide. And now, writer Sarah Coulter has given a quick update about the direction of the film.
"There are a lot of unknowns about that weekend [when the murders/suicide took place], which is probably why so many people have tried to fill in the blanks with conspiracy theories," she explained. "Chris Benoit was behind the murders, but we still wanted to touch on several of those theories."
Coulter then commented on which wrestlers will be part of the film. "Eddie [Guerrero] is obviously very important to the story," she said. "Triple H, Kurt Angle, they're all there, but it's early and things can still change."
Regarding whether the movie is a Chris Benoit biopic, Coulter replied: "Chris had a remarkable career. You take a look at his time in Japan and with Stu Hart, and you realize that you'd need more than one movie to tell the entire Chris Benoit story. Ultimately, it's about the 2007 murders/suicide, so we had to pick and choose the right moments in Chris' career that may have been factors in his downfall."
Finally, Coulter said there are several actors in talks for the lead role and that an official casting announcement is coming soon.
