Written and directed by Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene), The Iron Claw is based on a true story and follows the famed Von Erich family through their ups and downs in the world of wrestling. No release window has been set as of writing.

The Von Erich family has had an enormous impact on wrestling since the 60s, and is notorious for their so-called family curse. Five of the six sons of Fritz Von Eric, the first wrestler of the family, died prior to their father in a wide range of circumstances. Most of Fritz’s sons, including Kerry Von Erich, famously wrestled prior to their deaths. To this day, Marshall and Ross Von Erich, the sons of Kevin Von Erich (the last living son of Fritz), still wrestle.
