The long in development biopic on the career of Gorgeous George may finally get filmed … “Frozen” star Josh Gad has been hired to pen the WWE Studios movie.
Gad and his partner Ryan Dixon will be writing the flick … according to a WWE Studios statement published by Variety — which says the movie will be promoted across all of the companies platforms.
WWE Studios has yet to make a movie based on a wrestler’s life story, but in 2010 they picked up the rights to John Capouya’s book about Gorgeous George. At the time, a WWE Studios exec said they were eager to rush the film into production … but that never happened.
Unclear when the movie is aiming to go into production.
