Director selected for upcoming Chris Benoit movie

Jul 23, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

Movie website is reporting that Vicente Amorim has been
chosen to direct the upcoming Chris Benoit flick Crossface, based on the
adaptation of Matthew Randazzo book Ring Of Hell. “Wrestling is showbiz
taken to the extreme and ‘Crossface’ is Limelight on steroids,” said
Amorim. “Chris Benoit’s story is the perfect vehicle for a fiercely honest
film that is as much about him and the world of wrestling as it is about
America and show business. I am very happy to be on board to help tell
this story.” The film is being spearheaded by SRG Films, whose chief Dale
Alexander Carnegie called Amorim’s work “not only thrilling, but also
touching, two things we hope to bring to our film.” Former Weinstein
Company staffer, Sarah Coulter, wrote the script.
