A24 has reported about their upcoming drama, The Iron Claw, which features Zac Efron. The film tells a story about a reputed Von Erich family of wrestlers.
Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene) is both writer and director of this project. It is based on the true story of the reputed Von Erich family who experiences ups and downs in their wrestling career. There hasn’t been a release window of writing.
The Von Erich is famed for their family curse and also they have had a big influence on wrestling since the 60s. Five of the six sons of Fritz Von Eric are the first wrestlers of the family; however, they even died ahead of their father due to various situations. It’s noted that most of Fritz’s sons, including Kerry Von Erich (the last living son of Fritz), are famous for wrestling before they died. Until now, Kevin Von Erich’s sons, Marshall and Ross Von Erich are still wrestlers.
The film is produced by A24, Tessa Ross, Harrison Huffman, and Derrin Schlesinger. The Iron Claw is now developed by House Productions in association with Access Entertainment and BBC Film.
