I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this but here's the scoop from imdb.

The wife of Owen Hart, the professional wrestler who fell 50 feet to his death during a pay-per-view event in Kansas City, MO in May, 1999, has confirmed that she has signed a rights deal with Artisan Entertainment, which plans to make a movie about the wrestler. "There's a lot of mystery behind what really happened and the story has never been told properly," Martha Hart told the Toronto Globe and Mail in Calgary. She has filed a lawsuit against the WWF and others, charging that "in their ever-increasing effort to increase ticket sales and TV market share, the WWF has deliberately chosen to promote profit at the expense of the most basic safety of its performers."

Now the big questions, who will play Owen?

One of the brothers? Will Vince give this movie the "Beyond the Mat" treatment? If he has any kind of class he should at least give them access to video archives of Owen (which he allegdley promised Bret at the funeral).

I hope this movie gets the attention it deserves and doesn't end up in development limbo. Maybe it will start up the union talks again.

I can't imagine VKM being very co-operative with this project. I doubt Martha Hart would give the OK to a movie that would paint the WWF in a good light. Expect worse that "Beyond The Mat" treatment.

He and my dad looked a lot a like so I was fond of Star Trek and In Search Of and his photography projects. My dad died in 2008, and Spock's appearance in the Star Trek reboot trailer not long after surprised me. It cemented that association.
