Zac Efron has been busy lately. Between Firestarter and an untitled Netflix Romantic Comedy that was just announced, he’s got a lot on his plate. According to Deadline, the new film, The Iron Claw, comes from A24 and writer-director Sean Durkin. It’s all about the Von Erich family and their rise and fall. The Von Erichs were one of the most famous families in Professional Wrestling from the 1960s and on. They made a huge impact in the sport, rivaling the power of the McMahon family for a time, especially in the state of Texas.
It’s unknown at the time which family member Efron is playing or what the time frame of the film is. Either way, it’s a great time to be a wrestling fan between WWE, All Elite Wrestling, and New Japan Pro Wrestling lighting the world aflame. The Iron Claw isn’t like anything else that Efron has done in his career, so it should be a nice challenge for him.
