A Petition for the Script PRIDE, Based on The Independent Wrestling Revolution, to be Made into a Movie.
Just recieved this information and sending it along.
To: The Movie Making Public
Pride is a movie script based upon the first year of
the Independent Wrestling Revolution. Freshly written
by Patrick John Burton, this one of a kind film goes
in-depth in revealing the highs and lows...the
financial, physical and mental sacrifices that are
commonplace in independent professional wrestling.
The drama retells the beginnings of a family-friendly
wrestler-run promotion after the roster walks out on
their careless and sadistic booker. When they finally
get a chance to compete in front of their hometown
fans, can they survive in a market where the demand
for extreme violence is above all else?
The movie is also a tribute to the memory of one of
Michigan's most beloved independent stars, the late
Jeff �Yukon Braxton� Dingess and his influence on the
creation of the IWR.
We, being wrestlers, bookers, referees, everyone who
works in and around the business and the fans who love
their work, ask that the mainstream movie making
public read this script and give it serious
consideration for production. This movie is to honor
those who are often overlooked by mainstream wrestling
fans, the independent performer. Whether it is a
booker, a wrestler or even the ring crew, they all
require their 15 minutes of fame. What they do to
themselves night in and night out, simply for the
cheers of a few hundred fans, is simply incredible.
They deserve to hear their story told.
It could also help spark another wrestling boom as new
fans would be introduced to the business by seeing
this movie. They could then go see their own homegrown
talent and see a great show put on in their own neck
of the woods, see the next big breakout stars to hit
the big time before anyone else, and even return some
of the casual fans back to World Wrestling
The possibilities and press attention resulting from a
movie like this are near limitless. The movie itself
is perfect and has the backing of the wrestling world.
Movie makers everywhere, think about it.
Thank you for your time.
