Deadline.com is reporting that a director has been chosen for the planned movie covering the Chris Benoit tragedy.

The movie is called Crossface.  When asked about the film, Amorim stated “Chris Benoit’s story is the perfect vehicle for a fiercely honest film that is as much about him and the world of wrestling as it is about America and show business. I am very happy to be on board to help tell this story.”
