Knights the movie "Fighting with my family"

59 posts in this topic

Goes to show that Rock seems to have a bit of pull and people are willing to work with him/projects that he's involved with. You've got to think that if he wasn't involved with this, these names wouldn't be as willing.

 

Really hope that this works out well

This re Vaughn's casting from Rock's Instagram is interesting.  Let speculation begin...

 

He's playing a man who I know all too well and those of you who follow wrestling history know well too.
The 80's wrestling star who squandered his money and opportunities because he didn't have the capacity to handle his fame. One bad decision after another, but these days he owns his past actions and does everything he can to give back to the wrestling business he loves.

 

I want to say Jake? Know he has history in the UK, but you lot'll know better than I whether he was involved with the Knights at any stage.

It must be Flair. I know a lot of 80s stars blew all their cash but he is the biggest and most spectacular.

I know he's more 90s than 80s but Scott Hall works for WAW quite a lot. They seem to have a good relationship

He was. Did a fair bit of work for WAW when he was living over here. No showed a fair amount too...

 

It's got to be either Jake or Razor (who is currently WAW's commissioner, appears every couple of months.) I guess it depends where they 'end' the story (I'd pictured it being Paige becoming Divas Champion) as Hall is a relatively recent addition to the Knights' story, but it might be used to show where WAW are now.

 

Jake I could see being part of the narrative as "American star who was booked to attract people to shows at a low ebb for British wrestling, but let the promoters down".

Is this a "Based on" or is actors portraying real people? I mean, are Nick Frost and Cersei actually playing Ricky and Saraya or characters based on them?

 

Either way I'm really looking forward to it!

It's got to be Scott Hall hasn't it? Just for the hair if nothing else.

If it was going to be Flair, I couldn't see past Will Ferrell after him in Eastbound and Down.

I have read before that Jake actually stayed with the family so the link does make sense. Jake was a huge 80;s star who lost his money, thankfully he has his own redemption.

Lena Headeys said on Twitter that she is looking forward to playing Saraya so I guess they are portraying the real people.

Good god, this is mental. Stephen Merchant writing & directing, The Rock & Film4 bankrolling it, Cersei frickin' Lannister playing Saraya! Vince Vaughan and Nick Frost are also big names in their own right. This is extraordinary. I really enjoyed the documentary, can't wait to see this.
