As noted earlier on the site, actor Liev Schreiber was announced for the movie, “Crossface”, film. He will be playing Chris Benoit in the film. The film is reportedly being produced by SRG Films and is an adaptation of Matt Randazzo’s “Ring of Hell” book.
In an update, the mention that Schrieber would be playing Chris Benoit was described as “premature” and not the case as of now, but the movie is still happening.
One person noted that producers of the movie haven’t heard from Schriber in years so it’s not even known if he’s still interested in the role.
There’s still no release date for the film yet.
