Academy Award winner and Hollywood superstar Nicolas Cage is currently in negotiations to star in a movie about the pro wrestling industry, currently titled “The Wrestler.” Here’s a synopsis of the project from the Entertainment Trade Journal: “The movie tells the story of Randy ”The Ram” Robinson, a 1980s-era pro wrestler who has become a burnt-out shell of his former self. After he has a heart attack during a small-time match, a doctor tells him he could die if he fights again. He moves in with an aging stripper and takes a job at a deli, but then decides he can’t pass”
