K.J. Yossman A documentary about Eddie Hall, the strongman and “Expendables 4” actor, has been acquired for worldwide theatrical release and streaming by sports media company Generation Iron. “Taming The Beast – The Emptiness Within” is a feature-length doc from Switzerland-based Jeridoo Universe about British strongman Hall. “The film follows Hall, the world’s strongest man, as he learns how to embrace his mental health challenges by confronting his inner demons and dealing with his biggest failure to date, which ultimately changes his life,” reads the logline. “The film explores Hall’s struggles with depression and mental health and brings to light how famous athletes and celebrities struggle with these challenges.” Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone make cameos in the documentary as they offer Hall both mentorship and friendship.
Actor Gabriel Luna (“The Last of Us”) and boxer Katie Luna also appear in the film. Hall, who set a world record dead lift in 2016, lifting 500 kg (1,100 lb), is a retired strongman and 2017 winner of the World’s Strongest Man competition.
As well as the “Expendables” franchise he is set to appear in “Winter’s Inferno” and “Romeo.” He also hosts YouTube channel Eddie Hall The Beast, which boasts almost 3 million subscribers.
Chris Michael Fretwell and Josias Tschanz directed the doc with help from second unit director Matt Bell (“Terminator 6”). Ali Faharani is director of photography while Mike Jackson is lead editor.Read more on variety.com
