I'm just not into wrestling. It only comes in two forms: very fake or very Greco -- both of which just don't do it for me. Nicolas Cage, however, is hoping to take a shot at the sport with a new indie drama from screenwriter Robert Siegel.

Nicolas Cage for The Wrestler


The Wrestler, now in development at Darren Aronofsky's Protozoa Pictures, centers on Randy "The Ram" Robinson, a 1980s-era star 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.

In an effort to build a new life, Robinson takes a job at a deli, moves in with an aging stripper and tries to build a relationship with her son. But the prospect of a rematch with his old nemesis the Ayatollah proves too tempting to resist, even if it means risking his life.

Though the premise sounds more twisted than interesting, expect some attention to garner for The Wrestler if Aronofsky does decide to direct.
