Before Big Show, there was “Andre The Giant”.
The legendary wrestler was listed at 7-foot-4 and over 500 pounds. It’s safe to say there hasn’t been a larger wrestler ever.
In honor of his legacy, a team is coming together to create his biopic film.
Lion Forge Comics and producers Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell have partnered to develop a feature film about the life of iconic pro wrestler Andre “The Giant” Roussimoff.
Lion Forge CEO David Steward II had this to say.
“As a lifelong wrestling fan, I can say with conviction that no one was bigger than Andre,” said Lion Forge CEO David Steward II. “His presence and charisma were so powerful, and you could tell there was much more to him under the surface of his ring persona. It’s been an amazing experience telling that story in the book with Robin’s help. With all the spectacle, action, and emotion there on the page, a feature film just made perfect sense.”
At this time there’s no specific release date.
