WWE CEO Vince McMahon is getting his own biopic, titled "Pandemonium," and the film is on the lookout for the actor to portray McMahon.
Glenn Ficarra and John Reque, who worked on "Crazy, Stupid, Love," will helm the film based on a script written by Craig A. Williams, The Hollywood Reporter reported. "American Sniper" producer Andrew Lazar and WWE Studios president Michael Luisi are producing.
