A movie based on the life of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is now currently in the works. The movie is being called "Pandemonium" and Tristar Pictures are responsible for it. A director and script writer have already been named.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Glenn Ficarra has been tipped to direct the movie while Craig A. Williams has written the script.

The movie was actually pitched to movie studios last year, but Vince McMahon was not happy with it. Now it seems the movie is going ahead with McMahon happy with this current pitch.

If you don't know Vince McMahon, he is the man that made professional wrestling the mega giant it is today. Before the '80s, wrestling was territorial.

Wrestling companies just focused on their own states and rarely traveled across the country or around the world.

McMahon changed all that and made the WWE is big as it is today. Now the company travels all across North America and in many countries around the world.

This movie will be very interesting to watch for anyone that is not familiar with McMahon.

Let's just say McMahon has never been the kindest man on the planet and there have been a lot of things he has been involved with over the years.

The infamous "Montreal Screwjob" should be one incident that this movie should cover.

Pandemonium is not the only WWE biopic in the works. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is producing another biopic movie called "Fighting with my Family".

This movie focuses on the life and family of female wrestler Paige. The Rock already filmed scenes for that movie at a recent WWE Raw event.

Anyway, the WWE continues to be popular to this day.

It might not be as popular as it was in the '80s and '90s, but its international reach is much bigger than it was a few years ago.

Not to mention the company is earning a lot of revenue today thanks to the WWE Network.
