Aaron Dean Eisenberg is getting pumped for his half in Sean Durkin’s upcoming wrestling drama, The Iron Claw. Eisenberg will play the legendary wrestler Ric Aptitude within the forthcoming movie, a loud persona of the squared circle whose signature transfer is the Inside Heel Hook. The Iron Claw stars a jacked-up Zac Efron, Harris Dickinson, Holt McCallany, Jeremy Allen White, and Maura Tierney. Durkin wrote and is directing the wrestling drama for A24.
The Iron Claw is a biopic a couple of household dynasty of wrestlers, the Von Erichs, which embrace Efron as Kevin, The Bear’s Jeremy Allen White as Kerry, and The King’s Man star Harris Dickinson as David Von Erich. Sadly, the Von Erich household legacy is shrouded in misfortune, as a number of members of the group died by suicide or different tragic means. The Von Erich household historical past is so sketchy that some imagine they’re cursed. Sadly, parental neglect, household feuds, and the risks of the wrestling business may be linked to the hardships of the Von Erich clan.
Aptitude performs a significant function within the Von Erichs’ story. The platinum blond-haired icon fought Kerry Von Erich for the NWA Championship Belt in 1984, with the outcomes of the match nonetheless talked about to today. Richard Morgan Fliehr, identified professionally as Ric Aptitude, is taken into account one of many best wrestlers of all time. He’s formally acknowledged as a 16-time champion of the squared circle, although that depends upon who you ask. Many followers would argue Aptitude achieved the rank of champion a minimum of 25 occasions in his profession, relying on the supply.
The Iron Claw is shaping as much as be as hard-hitting because the athletes the movie depicts. I’d hate to be on the receiving finish of a fist to the face by both Efron or Eisenberg. Let’s hope the stunt coordinators are sharper than the ache of Aptitude’s Inside Heel Hook.
