The Vince McMahon Film

Yes, I heard that a film was in production but nothing seems to have come of it. Vince obviously wouldn't let anything get out there that makes him look like the mentalist that he is. I'm just throwing shit out there. It would make a great TV series. The story of him inheriting this crazy business and destroying the territories, his relationship with Hogan... it almost writes itself!

A film would be interesting, anyone ever read sex lies and headlocks ? that's a good book, talks a lot about Vince in the early days getting into promoting, wrestlemania, family life. Some things in the book talk about how sleazy he was especially around female employees. Stuff youf get away with in the 80s but if that happened today Vince would end up like Harvey Weinstein

If its a WWE Films production it'll be highly unlikey we will see a real portrayal of Vince. Ideally for that to happen it would need to be independently produced. But you can imagine WWE legals team putting a lot of roadblocks into stopping it being released. Vince is a real interesting character and his story should be told. As long as its not like the Jesse Ventura movie which seemed to be based in an alternative reality.

I'm not sure a film is really needed (lets assume the WWE films one is PG).

I would be more than happy with a 24 type show like a documentary about him, obviously more than one as they produce them much better. I could imagine him already filming things stored away in archive for when the time is right and he seems like someone who would know his time is up (morbid I know) and milk his final months for the sake of a good WWE network show.

It would depend which version of Vince they were wanting to portray. If it's in the hands of WWE Films then it's largely irrelevant, but if they went with wanting to show as 80 & 90s Vince up until Mr McMahon comes around I could see John Hamm being well cast, he could do the mild manner TV side of Vince but also the sleazy fucker behind the scenes too.

If you wanted to portray as the utter mental case that he probably is, Al Pachino in his prime would have been great if a foot or so too short. Having said that, the last thing I saw him in was a biopic of Phil Spector and it's been even longer since I saw him in anything good
