The life of Owen Hart.
A documentary based on the life of former two-time WWF Intercontinental Champion Owen Hart is in the works. Keaton Stone, who is partnering with Curate Films are joining forces to tell the life story of Owen Hart. Owen's widow Martha Hart has given the film her blessing and shared the news of the documentary to the Owen Hart Foundation blog.
Keaton Stone shared some details of the film to SLAM! Sports and noted that he has Martha Hart's entire home archive with hours of footage of Owen. SmackDown Live Women's Champion Natalya as well as WWE Hall Of Famer Bret "The Hitman" Hart have been interviewed for the film as well.
"It is official now as Martha [Hart, Owen's widow] has posted it on The Owen Hart Foundation blog and I also have a Twitter (@owenhartfilm) that I'm trying to use to raise a bit more awareness and to hopefully find people who knew Owen during his life - grew up with him or wrestled with him -- were superfans of his, etc. -- and might have any memorable stories and especially any photographs or video footage of him," Stone told SLAM! Wrestling via email. "I have Martha's entire home archive -- hours and hours of footage and all her photos -- but I'm trying to find as much as possible for the film to be as amazing as it should be in honour of this incredible man," he said.
Keaton Stone is currently in Japan with a camera crew and is traveling "The Land Of The Rising Sun" to chat with people and wrestlers who knew the former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Owen Hart. Stone also has an interview set up with WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley.
"It's all looking very positive so far," said Stone. "I just need to raise the awareness level a bit more and also find some amazing people / stories from around the world so that the film can contain a real international flavour."
