Owen Hart’s tragic death was the topic of Dark Side of the Ring’s Season 2 finale earlier this year. The episode brought in record-numbers for the show and Vice TV. Now, UK-based company, Kaleidoscope Film Distribution, plans to release a feature-length documentary on the youngest son of Stu & Helen Hart next year.
“Told in five enthralling chapters covering Owen’s upbringing, rise to fame, his life away from the ring, through the pressure-cooker atmosphere of the WWE, and its increasingly outlandish storylines that eventually led to his death, ‘Owen‘ will feature wrestling legends including Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, Owen’s close friend, The Rock, Mick Foley, Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, Jim Ross, and many more,” reads a description for the film.
The film is currently in production. It is expected to be released in late Q1 (spring) in 2021.
Vaughan Sivell (Pistorius, Mr. Calzaghe), Keaton Stone, and Jo Lewis are listed as producers. Lewis will direct the film.
Owen Hart Merchandise To Support The Owen Hart Foundation
In the build-up to the Dark Side of the Ring episode focussed on Owen, the Owen Hart Foundation and Vice released official merchandise. Proceeds from the first official Owen Hart t-shirts available in two decades will go to support the Foundation’s work.
Vice released a deleted scene from the episode after its premiere. The clip features people talking about Owen’s epic pranks.
