Wrestler 1st look
Rourke plays Randy Ram Robinson, who is forced to give up his wrestling career due to heart problems. He gets a job at a deli, moves in with an aging stripper (Marisa Tomei, who continues to impress in darker fare), but is soon drawn back to the ring by the prospect of a rematch with his former nemesis the Ayatollah. This sounds great. Aranofsky is one of the most visually talented directors working today, and Im thinking THE WRESTLER can do for wrestling movies (what wrestling movies?) what RAGING BULL did for boxing movies.

|Extra Tidbit:||Nic Cage was originally supposed to star in this one, which is too bad for him. It could have done his career some good.|
