Hollywood has a long love affair with celebrities who have overcome addictions to return to the spotlight. Robert Downey Jr. is living proof of that. Now, as the documentary detailing the return of James Calhoun to wrestling nears completion, the so called Callous One might be heading to a big screen roll as well.
According to Hollywood Insiders, Calhoun’s agent has been in talks with Warner Brothers, who is preparing to reboot the Mortal Kombat film franchise. If the rumors are to be believed, Calhoun might be in contention to play gunslinger Erron Black in the new film.
This is all still in the very early stages and a viral video of James Calhoun’s agent Alison Everett punching her client in the face may put a damper on such negotiations. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available!
