Vince McMahon Killed Movie Project About His Life

A Vince McMahon film was in the works, but it turns out the enigmatic billionaire didn’t want to see it happen even though he initially signed off on it.

It was in 2017 when Deadline reported that there was going to be a movie about the life of WWE’s Executive Chairman Vince McMahon, who served as the company’s Chairman & CEO before his July 2022 “retirement” from the company. The movie was going to be called “Pandemonium” with Sony Pictures’ TriStar set to produce it.

The life and career of Vince McMahon have been very interesting as he became one of the most important figures in pro wrestling history. In 1982, Vince purchased the Capitol Wrestling Corporation from his father Vince McMahon Sr. Vince would go on to build the WWF into a juggernaut on the heels of WrestleMania 1 in 1985.

In the 40+ years since he bought WWE, Vince McMahon is now looking for companies that are interested in buying WWE ahead of the company’s next TV deals expiring in October 2024. There are rumors that Vince is looking for as much as $9 billion for WWE or he could keep things as they are now if they don’t find the right company to take over WWE.

While a WWE sale might happen soon, the Vince McMahon “Pandemonium” film is not happening.

The duo of John Requa and Glenn Ficarra were going to direct “Pandemonium.” However, Ficarra told that “Pandemonium” was dead with Ficarra adding that “Vince killed it.”

Ficcarra would further explain that while the movie was ready to go ahead with filming, it was Vince McMahon who decided to stop the production from happening.

“We have never in our career had the studio, we had an actor, everybody was just like, ‘Let’s make this movie,’ and Vince said, ‘We’re not making it.'”

“So, yeah, we are on a very long list of people who got f***ed over by Vince.”

While Requa & Ficarra are likely upset about the movie not being made, WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker recently spoke about some lessons he learned from Vince.
