Liev Schreiber will play Chris Benoit in a biography film called "Crossface."

Could they have cast it any better? I'm so looking forward to seeing this, as well as the people that'll be playing other WWE personnel.

myself am completely against the idea and would never watch it.

just trying to milk money out of a terrible situation, hope WWE try and block use of names and things which would ruin it completely.

How can Vince stop a movie made about a real life incident, like no one can stop movies about Manson, Bronson etc
He has the rights to all the wrestlers names, finishers the WWE/F as a whole. If he doesn't want it to happen, then he can make it extremely difficult. I guess it would have to stay away from using other wrestlers that are copyrighted.

I guess it's possible.

agreed he can quite easily block most of the name rights, especially as he owns also ECW and WCW rights.

I just do not see what good this movie does, why people are interested in seeing a guy murder his wife and kid...........they won't at all be able to get real genuine background to it.

They'll just use fictional names, they have the most important one.

Why do films like Foxcatcher, Snowtown and Monster get made? It's an interesting story.

But Chris Benoit is his real name, even Vince cant stop that, Benoit's name isn't copywrited

It doesn't really matter if names are changed or not.
