During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, David Benoit (son of Chris Benoit from his first marriage) talked about his family turning down a Chris Benoit movie project in 2016.

“There was a director, everything bro. We had to step in because they wanted to do the tragedy about how it all went down. So we said no.
