La vie de Mick Foley en film

Message  Admin le Mar 28 Sep - 17:41

The Hardcore Legend a donc annoncé qu'il travaillerait en collaboration avec Union Square Media pour faire un "film majeur" basé sur l'histoire de la vie de Foley.
Un projet que Mick Foley envisageait depuis longtemps mais qui n'a jamais pu se concrétiser. Il y a quelques années, il avait écrit un scénario basé sur son premier livre biographique "Have a Nice Day" - A Tale of Blood and Sweatsocks" mais le projet n'avait jamais vu le jour.
Ce film retraçant l'histoire de la vie de Foley sera construit depuis un scénario co-écrit par Foley et Christopher J.Scott, qui sera le réalisateur du site. Scott a par ailleurs dirigé et produit plusieurs projets variés. Le producteur du film sera Jeff Katz, qui a récemment produit "Wolverine" et possède beaucoup de liens avec l'univers de la lutte de par son temps passé à travailler pour la WCW originale.
Pour rappel, l'un des autres projets de Mick Foley, à savoir son 4e livre biographique intitulé "Countdown to Lockdown" sera mis en vente le 1e Octobre.

Voici l'intégralité du communiqué de presse annonçant le film :

Union Square and American Original to Produce Feature Film Based on the Life Story of Professional Wrestler Mick Foley

NEW YORK, Sept. 27 /-- Union Square Agency (USSE Corp., Pink OTC Symbol: UCRP) will showcase the life story of one of the most hardcore wrestlers of all time, Mick Foley.

Union Square's Media division will produce the film with American Original founder Jeff Katz. Foley's managers, Michael Braverman and Barry Bloom, will also executive produce. Christopher J. Scott will be directing. The film, written by Scott and Foley, will tell the unmasked story of Mick's obsessive desire to become one of the most popular wrestling icons of all time. Foley is a New York Times bestselling and critically acclaimed author, having written two autobiographies, a series of children's books with a new memoir on the way called COUNTDOWN TO LOCKDOWN, from Grand Central Publishing launching on October 1st.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to finally bring my story to the screen. With Union Square as my tag-partner, I foresee many entertained and/or shocked audiences in our future," said Mick Foley.

Katz, who previously served as VP of Production at 20th Century Fox and New Line Cinema, founded the production company American Original. Their focus is to develop original and adapted film/ television properties and present them to the market place. Katz' credits include films such as SNAKES ON A PLANE, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, SHOOT EM UP, FREDDY VS. JASON and comics BOOSTER GOLD, CROSSHAIR and FREDDY VS. JASON VS. ASH.

"I spent three years in the wrestling industry before coming to Hollywood and always found Mick's story to be highly emblematic of the classic American success story. I've admired him as a man and entertainer for years and couldn't be more thrilled to return to my wrestling roots and help put Mick's story on film," said Jeff Katz.

Union Square Media has a reputation for cutting edge content and quality production in both the sports and lifestyle spaces. It is positioned to create, produce, develop and sell all forms of media with a progressive Emmy Award winning team.

"Mick's life story is an incredible journey that artfully balances his obsessive passion for the ring with the love for his family and friends around him. A story that is funny, shocking and inevitably triumphant. Both his existing fans and cinema fans alike will love it," said Director Christopher J. Scott.
