André the Giant Has a Posse, a Biopic in the Works

May 10, 2016


The late actor, wrestler, and giant André "The Giant" Roussimoff is getting a movie based on his short but also enormous life. Variety reports that Lion Forge Comics and producers Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell are teaming for a film based on André the Giant: Closer to Heaven, an estate-authorized graphic novel written by Brandon Easton and illustrated by Denis Medri. The Giant's daughter, Robin Christensen-Roussimoff, signed off on the biopic and will serve as a consultant. Producers now have the task of finding either a huge and talented actor or a very tiny beer can and a jockey that looks like Hulk Hogan.
