One of the films I was most excited about seeing during SXSW 2020 was the insane wrestling documentary, You cannot Kill David Arquette. The festival like most everything in 2020 was cancelled, so I never had the opportunity to see it. Today the trailer is here and boy, oh boy do I need to see this movie.
Horror fans will know Arquette from the Scream franchise where he played Deputy Dewey or from his directorial horror feature The Tripper. However, what you might not have known was that Arquette is a wrestling fanatic who entered has entered the ring, and confused the hell out of two entire fan bases at the same time.
If you have seen 2000’s Ready to Rumble starring Arquette and Scott Caan as two dudes absolutely obsessed with wrestling, then you sort of know the amount of passion that real David has for the ring and its stars.
The documentary itself features Arquette facing many obstacles but primarily the one that has him trying to come out of the wrestling game as less of a joke as he was seen earlier in his career. The trailer briefly touches on his moves in wrestling directly affecting his career as an actor.
Luckily we don’t have to wait long, You Cannot Kill David Arquette releases on August 28.
