Vicente Amorim has been appointed the director of the upcoming Crossface movie, which will focus on the Chris Benoit family tragedy. The movie will be an adaption of the book “Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry.”

Amorim told Deadline.com, “Wrestling is showbiz taken to the extreme and ‘Crossface’ is Limelight on steroids. Chris Benoit’s story is the perfect vehicle for a fiercely honest film that is as much about him and the world of wrestling as it is about America and show business. I am very happy to be on board to help tell this story.”

Sarah Coulter wrote the script and production is expected to begin next year.
