There is no shortage of actors in Hollywood who can portray real-life professional wrestlers, but while viewers wait for Chris Hemsworth's portrayal of Hulk Hogan, there will certainly be another wrestling-related movie released in 2023. The movie "The Iron Claw," in which Zac Efron portrays Kevin Von Erich, is now in production and tells the mythology of the Von Erich family. The former World Class Championship Wrestling champion recently spoke with TMZ, and it turns out that he has nothing but positive things to say about Efron's approach to the part.
I believe that will be a difficult assignment," Von Erich stated. But the person looks terrific in the image I saw of him. They're going to succeed because I don't think I've ever looked that fantastic.
He is not the only one, either. Third-generation wrestlers Ross and Marshall, who are also the sons of Von Erich, praised the role's seriousness on their Instagram page. They expressed excitement about the upcoming film on their family and noted that Zac Efron appeared to be giving the part his whole attention.
While Von Erich rose to prominence in his father's WCCW company beginning in the 1970s, the family as a whole would be honoured by the WWE in 2009 by being inducted into the Hall of Fame. His kids are former World Tag Team Champions who presently compete in Major League Wrestling (MLW). Although there is no definite release date for the movie, Von Erich is impressed by Efron's commitment.
He remarked, "He must be working out extremely hard." He must be working extremely hard, based on the pictures they first gave me and the picture I saw recently. It'll be entertaining, and I'll watch it.
