The Iron Claw’ is a film about the rise and fall of the legendary Von Erich family, who made a huge impact on the sport of professional wrestling in the 1960s. The film is set to star Zac Efron, who will play Kevin Von Erich in the movie. Jeremy Allen White also credited Efron for his shredded physique in the film.
The first trailer for the film was released earlier this year and it showed Zac Efron looking absolutely jacked as he was running the ropes, among other things. Naturally, the film is expected to be an emotional roller coaster in a big way.
Naturally, the actors had to step into the ring and actually learn moves between the ropes for the film. All of them had to bulk up considerably for the film as well. While speaking to TMZ, Jeremy Allen White made it clear that Zac Efron inspired him to get shredded for the film.
”I was in okay shape before, but I think I put on some weight for the movie.
[Did Zac motivate you?] He definitely did!”
Zac Efron and other cast members appeared for ‘The Iron Claw’ premiere as well. The film is also set to release on December 22nd this year, so we will have to wait and see whether the film will turn out to be a memorable one.
