Mick Foley: The Movie!!???

Mick Foley

Here’s unexpected news. According to IGN, hardcore wrestler and bestselling author Mick Foley has teamed up with film production company Union Square Media to make a biopic movie based on his life.  Foley and his manager Barry Bloom will write the screenplay, but it’s too early to tell if the film will be a documentary drama such as Foley’s first movie Beyond The Mat or an acted drama piece like (i.e. Mickey Rourke’s The Wrestler). More importantly it’s a mystery whether or not Foley will play himself in the picture, since Jerry Lawler played himself in the 1970s-set drama Man On The Moon, or hire an actor to play as him. It should also be noted that Foley is now wrestling for TNA and left WWE in bad terms around mid-2008. Most of Foley’s memorable moments were at the WWF/E, including the dive from Hell In A Cell and the 1999 Royal Rumble I Quit Match where his own family watched in horror from ringside. So it should be interesting if WWE will have a presence in the movie despite Foley working at the rival company.

I have no idea who should play Foley other than the man himself, but I always thought Warren Beatty would be perfect to play Vince McMahon.

Fingers crossed for a cameo from Mr. Socko!
