I read on Scott Keith's blog in the comments section that USA is planning a made-for-TV movie about Owen's death and his wife's suit against WWE. From thefutoncritic.com:

http://www.thefutoncritic.com/ cgi/gofuton.cgi?action=newswire& id=6568

"RING OF LIES (original movie) - chronicles how the wife of wrestler Owen Hart wrested a multimillion settlement out of Vince McMahon's WWE after her husband died doing a stunt during a match. Executive producers: Robert Cooper and Paul Kaufman. Writers: T.S. Cook and Ron Hutchinson"

Nothing on the Internet Movie Database about it yet, so it's probably still months (years?) off. Still, I have the feeling that this is going to be a.....how should I put this....not good movie.

Wasn't FX planning to do a Owen Hart story? Or is this the same thing? Well, the more Owen the better!

But who will play Vince? Brian Dennehy?



I'd tell you to kiss my ass, but I don't want to get it infected.

I'm thinking Alan Thicke.

If they get Thicke to play Vince, would Kirk Cameron play Shane?

I somehow think Mickey Rourke would get dragged into this.

Just as long as they get Zach de la Rocha to be X-Pac and Taylor Hawkings as Edge...everything will be copacetic.

Star Jones as Jacqueline would rule too.

For Vince they should get Ray Wise. He had a "Vince-Type" thing going in "The Chase".

I'd like to see Owen Wilson as Owen Hart. He'd have to beef up a little, but he's got the nose and the hair...and the name!

....and Will Smith as the Godfather??


Seriously: Iīm not exactly a fan of those so called wrestling "movies"! I think the world could do well without them!
If it is done documentary style ok, but if I feel like watching bad actors act bad, then the only thing I have to do is to turn on SmackDown and watch guys like JBL, the Big Show and Torrie Wilson!

Here's hoping the proposed flick(s) live up to the accuracy standards of The Jesse Ventura Story.

Ye gods, this has WrestleCrap written all over it. I hate to see 'em fudge up Owen's legacy with what will surely be a heaping pile o'suck.

When I first read about this movie, the Ventura movie is the first thing that came into my mind.

Hmm, Rey/Chavo could be decent, but other than that, not much else that catches my interest. Mordecai & Kenzo both wrestling in the same show. Ouch.
