It’s just over a year since Bennett Miller’s Oscar-nominated Foxcatcher hit UK cinemas and now, Netflix is taking us back behind the ring for more on the wrestling tragedy of the Schultz brothers.
The film uses home video footage and firsthand interviews to capture the relationship of David and Mark Schultz with millionaire backer John du Pont, who moves from philanthropist to something far more troubling. The footage comes mostly from the camera of David’s wife’ Nancy, with director Jon Greenhaigh piecing the puzzle together.
“I’m proud to be a part of this film that was six years in the making to honor the incredible legacy of David. With his ties to the wrestling community, we felt Jon Greenhalgh was the perfect filmmaker to tell this story and pay homage to the kind of man and athlete David was,” said Nancy in a statement.
The film will first premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on 18th April, before getting a global release on Friday 29th April.
