- Above is an 80s themed trailer for a new film on "Rowdy" Roddy Piper titled, Roddy Piper: In His Own Words. The film is from Nine Legends director David Sinnott which features never before seen footage of "The Hot Rod." In the trailer, Piper says his "War to Settle the Score" match against Hulk Hogan on MTV was his happiest moment.
"This project meant a lot to me to put together," Sinnott said. "I have fond memories of working with Piper on another project and it didn't sit well with me that so much great footage was locked away in a vault. I recall his daughter was present for the entirety of our film shoot and it was clearly evident that he was a decent family man. It was important for me to connect with Roddy's wife, Kitty Toombs, for input on this project."
Roddy Piper: In His Own Words is available to stream now at ninelegendsfilm.com for $7.99, which includes access to Nine Legends, starring Bill Goldberg, Mike Tyson and Chris Jericho. A percentage of all sales will be donated to the Doernbecher Children's Hospital, a hospital which was special for Roddy.
- Entertainment Weekly has an article here about The Rock's Q&A at last weekend's Los Angeles Comic-Con. When asked if he would run for President in 2020, The Rock replied, "I think the 'People's President' has a really nice ring to it. I'll just say that." The Rock also discussed why he signed on to star in his upcoming film, Jumanji.
"It was the opportunity that we had to introduce Jumanji to a whole new generation," The Rock said. "Also, too, it was my personal way of really paying homage and respect to the one man who created the Jumanji magic to begin with, Mr. Robin Williams."
