Neon Acquires David Arquette Wrestling Documentary


Super LTD, the boutique division and incubator from Neon, has secured the North American distribution right to You Cannot Kill David Arquette, the SXSW-selected documentary that details the journey through Arquette’s life and wrestling.

David Darg and Price James directed the doc, which was filmed over a three-year period. Following his infamous championship run as part of a marketing stunt for the film Ready to Rumble, Arquette is widely known as the most hated man in pro-wrestling worldwide. Nearly 20 years after he “won” the initial title, through ups and downs in his career, with his family, and with his struggles with addiction, Arquette seeks redemption by returning to the ring for real this time.

I saw a trailer for this earlier this year, which appears to have been removed from the web, but I can say that the trailer made this doc look like a must watch, even if you’re not a wrestling fan like myself.
