Vince McMahon

Deadline.com is reporting that Sony Pictures’ TriStar and WWE Studios will be teaming up to develop a film about Vince McMahon’s rise in the wrestling industry.

The film, currently titled “Pandemonium”, appears to have the blessing of McMahon with WWE Studios involved with the current project.

“The film covers McMahon’s ascension in the wrestling business, and having WWE Studios involved indicates the project has the blessing of the grappling magnate. He is third generation — the business was started by his grandfather Jess and taken over by his father Vincent — but these were local circuits and relatively small time compared to what Vince McMahon had in mind. The barrel-chested showman turned the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) into a global roadshow business juggernaut. He unleashed grapplers from Hulk Hogan to Bruno Sammartino and Triple H to budding actor John Cena and The Rock, aka Dwayne Johnson, Hollywood’s reigning action star.”

  1. I hope it doesn’t shy away from Vince’s negative qualities and shows him with all of his flaws as the man himself has never shied from them.

  2. I wonder if they will get Harrison Ford to play Vince McMahon? How about Helen Mirren as Linda and Shia LaBeouf as Shane, Anne Hathaway as Stephanie and Chris Hemsworth as Triple H?

    It’s just wishful thinking.

  3. There’s already a movie like this. It’s called Revenge of the Sith. Any chance of getting Ian McDiarmid to play Vince?
    Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and publicly traded wrestling promotion!
