The Iron Claw has been given an official release date according to a new report.

The Von Erich family are the stuff of wrestling royalty, but their rise to wrestling superstardom has been fraught with tragedy. Following the sudden passing of David Von Erich at the young age of 25, his brothers Mike, Kerry, and Chris all ended up taking their own lives. Family patriarch and World Class Championship Wrestling promoter Fritz Von Erich passed away from brain and lung cancer at the age of 68.

In June of 2022, Deadline reported that Zac Efron would be starring in an A24 film chronicling the life of the Von Erich family. It was later revealed that he would be playing the role of Kevin Von Erich, who is one of the last surviving members of the wrestling dynasty and was on hand for the family’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009. Efron underwent a major physical transformation for his role.

The film also stars Jeremy Allen White as Kerry Von Erich and will feature current AEW World Champion MJF as Lance Von Erich. White also bulked up for his role, putting on 40lbs.

When Will The Iron Claw Be Released In Movie Theaters?

According to a new report from Variety, The Iron Claw is set for a December 22, 2023 release in theaters across the United States. It is written and directed by Sean Durkin and produced by A24, an independent studio exempt from the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.

The movie is currently in post-production and not expected to feature at film festivals despite its award season release.
