WWE Head Vince McMahon Biopic 'Pandemonium' Secures Deal

A biopic on Vince McMahon has been confirmed Forbes

WWE’s Vince McMahon will be the subject of a new biopic called Pandemonium, now that TriStar has secured the rights to the project. This news comes via an exclusive report on The Hollywood Reporter.

While no casting announcements have been made regarding the project, directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are currently scheduled to direct a script written by Craig A. Williams. Ficarra and Requa have previously written and directed Crazy, Stupid, Love, I Love You Phillip Morris and direct and executive produce the TV series This Is Us.

The news doesn’t mention what the movie will be about, but the life of Vincent Kennedy McMahon is insane enough for a number of movies. Realistically, the movie will probably pick up from Vince’s announcer days for the WWWF and move up to him buying the company from his dad and going on to create what we now know as the WWE, while becoming a billionaire with a wife in the Presidential cabinet.

What’s interesting to note is that originally, Pandemonium didn’t have the official stamp of approval from McMahon or the WWE. This made studios hesitant to start work on the project. However, something has changed, and now Vince and Co. are on board.

This likely means that we’re going to get a much softer and more PG-friendly picture than what was originally pitched. Mr. McMahon’s true life story is dark and complicated, but I’m sure he isn’t looking to use this movie to uncover any secrets or explore any wrongdoings. Expect something that will end up being uplifting and about following your dreams.

Seriously though, what actor is even capable of playing Vince? The man is a living cartoon, a caricature of a caricature. Whoever ends up playing the role is in for a challenge to try and get everything right, including his hatred of sneezing.

No release window was given for Pandemonium as of yet.

So what do you think? Are you interested in seeing the life story of Vince McMahon on the big screen? Do you think it’ll be as watered down as we’re predicting? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
