Already some time ago, MJF had told us in some interviews that his intention was to focus both on working in the ring, but also on a possible film career in Hollywood and it seems that he has succeeded. In fact, Deadline reported that it will be part of the film "The Iron Claw", a film that will tell the story of the Von Erich family, one of the most famous in the professional wrestling business not only for the work done in the ring, but also for the dramas that unfortunately suffered for much of its existence.
Already in the film are some very famous actors including Zac Efron, who recently made the web go crazy, even the part that does not follow the discipline, for the sensational change of physique he implemented to be able to play Kevin Von Erich.
MJF is ambitious
These are Deadline's words regarding the news involving All Elite Wrestling wrestler: “EXCLUSIVE: A24 wrestling film 'The Iron Claw' from Cannes and Sundance Award-winning director Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene) is getting a new touch of authenticity with the addition of professional wrestler Maxwell Jacob Friedman to the cast.
Friedman joins a group consisting of Jeremy Allen White, Zac Efron, Harris Dickinson, Holt McCallany, Maura Tierney and Lily James, as previously announced. Based on a true story, 'The Iron Claw' follows the rise and fall of the Von Erich family, a dynasty of wrestlers that has made a huge impact on sport from 1960 to the present day.
While Friedman's role will be his first in a film, no further details have been disclosed." We will obviously keep you updated on the film so that exactly as we imagine you can be very curious.

Cody Rhodes left AEW for a triumphant WWE return at WrestleMania earlier this year, but that doesn't mean MJF will follow the same path. "No... The only thing I care about at this point at 26 years of age is where will I make the most amount of money?...
I think if AEW is willing to pay me enough to put the company on my back and build it up so that one day we have a hundred thousand people at an event I don't see what the difference is," MJF said. He continued to explain that he prefers WWE's Nick Khan over AEW President Tony Khan. However, he admitted that he has yet to work for the former, so the opinion could change.
