Charlotte Flair & Liv Morgan in Mildred Burke film
Charlotte Flair and Liv Morgan are set to star in a new movie on the life of former NWA World Women’s Champion Mildred Burke, who was inducted into the Legacy Wing of the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016.
A new report from Fightful Select notes that the movie is scheduled to begin filming in Louisville, Kentucky this June. The film focuses on Burke’s life, career and marriage to promoter Billy Wolfe.
Flair will star as June Byers, who was inducted into the 2017 Legacy Wing of the WWE Hall of Fame, while Morgan will play the role of Clara Mortensen, who was billed as the first Women’s World Champion. Wolfe will be played by Josh Lucas, and Babe Gordon will be played by Marie Avgeropoulous.
Jim Ross recently stated that he will be working behind-the-scenes on the film, which is based on the “Queen of The Ring” book by Pulitzer-winne Jeff Leen. The film is produced by Aimee Schoof and Isen Robbins, and is written/directed by Ash Avildsen.
Well that might explain Livs sudden injury and needing to vacate the titles to go away for filming
