Reports Claim Bradley Cooper Is Set For WWE Film Role Of A Lifetime

Reports Claim Bradley Cooper Is Set For WWE Film Role Of A Lifetime

If you were born in the late 1980s or the early 90s then you are bound to appreciate the work of Vince McMahon. CEO and billionaire owner of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), rumours are afloat that a biopic on the eccentric owner is set to begin production, and some big names are already being attached.

The biopic is set to be called 'Pandemonium' and reports have emerged in recent days that Hollywood star Bradley Cooper is set to star as the WWE legend in the movie.

PWInsider.com are reporting that while Cooper has been offered the role, although it is unclear whether he will or has accepted it.

Those looking to delve into the life of Vince McMahon and the McMahon family may be disappointed however as it is being suggested that 'Pandemonium' is likely to be a highly fictionalised account of the eccentric billionaire's life. Hardly a surprising development since WWE Studios are to produce the film.

Forbes.com are also running with the story, as they revealed that WWE studios has struggled since its inception, with operating losses accruing to $700,000 in Q2 and a loss of $3.6 million through the first six months of 2017

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are set to be directors of Pandemonium and the pair are behind the U.S. smash hit TV show, This is Us.

It is a shame that the biopic is set to be a fictionalised as recently ESPN released a movie through their 30 for 30 series called 'This Was The XFL,' an experiment which spectacularly failed when McMahon and friend Dick Ebersol set up an American football league to rival the National Football League (NFL).

If Cooper does indeed accept the role, it would be a huge coup for the organisation, the American is one of the biggest movie stars in the world having starred in films such as, American Sniper, Limitless and the all time classic The Hangover.
