In 2012, Dwayne Johnson founded Seven Bucks Productions alongside his business partners Dany and Hiram Garcia. Since its creation, the company has co-produced films like Shazam! and Fighting With My Family. Additionally, the company produces most films Johnson stars in himself. During a conversation on the Busted Open podcast, professional wrestling legend Ric Flair revealed his own biopic is in the works from Johnson’s company in collaboration with WWE.
“I talked to Dwayne and Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia and they’re gonna collaborate, the last time I heard, for all this stuff and make a movie with the WWE about me with Sue Levison, who now is with WWE and is doing a fabulous job. Sue’s got a great background, Flair explained. “As soon as everything gets rolling again after that, they’ll make that movie. I am looking forward to that because I’ll have a lot of input.”
Ric Flair is a cultural icon and former 16-time World Champion, tied for most all-time with John Cena. His career has spanned over 40 years with appearances almost every major wrestling promotion in the world. He inspired multiple generations of professional wrestlers and became a household name over the decades. Additionally, Flair has associated with a number of musicians over the years, most recently as the subject of rapper Offset’s Ric Flair Drip.
Last year, the life and career of Ric Flair were documented on an episode of ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary series. He also continues to appear regularly on WWE television. Flair’s fellow wrestling legend Hulk Hogan will also receive the biopic treatment with Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth attached to star.
Johnson remains one of the busiest men in Hollywood. The actor will produce an NBC series based on his own life titled Young Rock. Additionally, Johnson’s DC film Black Adam, in theaters December 2021, will reportedly feature two different versions of the Justice Society of America.
