Tony Hawk the movie

02.22.2002

Hollywood is falling all over themselves to get pro-skateboarder Tony Hawk in their movies.   After Disney signed him to star in a biopic about his life, Universal has now decided to create a film around his life calling it a mix between BOOGIE NIGHTS, THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS and 8 MILE.  I'm not sure how this conflicts with Disney's planned biopic but I imagine that since this project, being written by Gary Scott Thompson (FAST AND THE FURIOUS), is a fictional tale more about the lifestyle than the man, it should be in the clear.  While Hawk will likely star, it's unknown how much screentime he'll have considering it's a coming-of-age type movie.  The actor playing young Tony Hawk could get just as much if not more.
