Sean Durkin‘s The Iron Claw has found its patriarch. Deadline reports that Holt McCallany has been added to the Von Erich clan and current cast of Zac Efron, Harris Dickinson and Jeremy Allen White. Production begins this month. We’re really excited to see Durkin reteam with Mátyás Erdély – we can just imagine what kind of moving camera aesthetic we might find here. Just think of his work in Son of Saul.
Based on the true story of the Von Erichs, the film follows the rise and fall of the Von Erich family, a dynasty of wrestlers who made a huge impact on the sport from the 1960s to the present day. Producing alongside A24 are Tessa Ross, Derrin Schlesinger and Harrison Huffman. This is one of the more exciting American indie film to watch out for in 2023.
