You cannot kill David Arquette.
That's according to the upcoming documentary directed by David Darg & Price James and produced by Christina Arquette.
The film was set to debut at South by Southwest before the festival was canceled due to the coronavirus. Instead, the film premiered at Arquette's home. The documentary has yet to secure theatrical or streaming distribution.
The documentary was shot over three years and starts after Arquette suffered a heart attack. From there, Arquette got himself back in shape and re-entered the world of professional wrestling as a former WCW World Heavyweight Champion.
“It had always bugged me, the way fans took it. I didn’t mean to be this disgrace on wrestling,” Arquette told the LA Times. “When the International House of Pancakes changed their name to International House of Burgers, someone said, ‘That’s a worse idea than making David Arquette the WCW champion.’ I’m like, ‘18 years later, I’m the low bar?’ I was sick of the bullying, and I wanted to stand up and rewrite the ending.”
It is unknown if or when the film will find distribution, but Arquette told the Times that he was proud he could prove himself on the Independent wrestling circuit.
