An upcoming film from A24 is opening in theatres later this month. It’s a wrestling movie, and its star is Hollywood hunk Zac Efron. The film will expose the actor’s transformation into pro wrestler Kevin Von Erich, whose name is mentioned now mostly in history books rather than in wrestling rings. The Iron Claw has received mixed reviews for its mix of digital and traditional filming techniques, with most critiques focusing on the realism of Efron’s makeup-and-clothing appearance as Kevin Von Erich. Apparently, there was some concern about whether or not he could actually wrestle convincingly enough to pull off his role. The film’s director, Sean Durkin, has since revealed that the way Efron is transformed for the role helped give him more of an edge than we might’ve expected from a non-wrestler. “One thing that I think helps bring Kevin Von Erich more to life is how he’s physically put together in the film.
Who is in the cast?

- Maura Tierney
- Harris Dickinson

- Lily James
The film is currently in production. It is expected to be released in 2023.
