I kinda meant to put up the preview for the movie based on Matt Hamill’s life before his fight with Keith Jardine, but what can I say? I was trapped in a tangled web of not giving even the smallest of shits about that fight. But Matt Hamill isn’t the only guy with a direct-to-video inspirational wrasslin movie coming out:
A windfall of opportunity is coming to town called “Win by Fall.” It is a feature film about wrestling set to shoot at Rockford High School on July 6-9. The film stars three time UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) heavyweight champion Dan “The Beast” Severn.
Writer of the screenplay, Joel Reisig, is also producing the PG-13 movie which is due to hit video stores and cable TV in 2011. His colleague, Chris Nickin, is directing the film.
Lest you think Reisig is small fry, I’d like to point out that he associate produced a football movie featuring Dustin Diamond aka Screech from Saved by the Bell and that scat sex tape, and another movie featuring Norm from Cheers.
