    Not sure they could legally prevent it, but I hope it never happens. I just don't know why you would make that movie and what it would even be about other than a cautionary tale. But I mean all movies based on real-life historical figures are exploitive in a way.

    Yup, I didn’t know much about the Von Erich family until this was announced. Made me depressed reading about the stories.

    As a long time wrestling fan, I know the story well. It's just... pain.

    it was the only major issue I had with Dallas Buyers Club, that the role of Dallas was played by both Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

    I just remembered that Harris Dickinson was in The King’s Man! Didn’t like that much, but he was alright!

    All of them will have to really bulk up, though!

    Well it’s not like A24 is really known for happy endings.

    That's not true. I saw Hereditary.

    Wonder who they’ll cast for the other Von Erich members? Pretty good cast so far.

    Mick Foley would be a good wrestling biopic that's not depressing. Wish someone would do that.

    That end credits and the Toy Story 4 teaser hitting so close together and using the same version of that song was an all-time great moment.

    Very interested to see who they get for Fritz. I feel like Joel Edgerton could play him younger, but it seems he'd be in his 60's and 70's for most of the movie.

    Only a roided out Tom Hardy could play late stage Chris Benoit.
