David Arquette's recent run as a wrestler will be the subject of an upcoming documentary.
The actor and former WCW champion has been wrestling for the better part of the past 18 months and his return to pro wrestling will be in full display on a documentary titled "You Cannot Kill David Arquette." David Darg, an Oscar-nominee for the documentary short film “Body Team 12,” directed the documentary and he’s been filming throughout Arquette’s tour for the last two years.
Arquette starred in the "Ready To Rumble" film and was brought in to WCW back in 2000 where he became a regular for a brief amount of time. In that time, however, Arquette became the WCW World Heavyweight Champion and his short run as champion had been negatively remembered by many. Nearly two decades later, Arquette returned to wrestle on the independent scene.
“I’ve always loved wrestling. I wanted to do this film as a love letter to wrestling,” Arquette said in a statement. “I didn’t know when I started this journey that it may cost me my life, but it was all worth it just to have the wrestlers in the locker room call me ‘one of the boys!'”
According to The Wrap, interviews with the likes of Courteney Cox, Arquette's sisters Patricia and Rosanna Arquette, Richmond Arquette and Ric Flair, among others will be featured in the documentary.
