HBO is developing a documentary on the life of WWE Hall of Famer Andre the Giant, according to Vanity Fair.
This will be the first HBO project from Grantland founder Bill Simmons since leaving ESPN earlier this year. According to Richard Johnson of PageSix.com, Simmons has enlisted the services of former ESPN 30 For 30 director Jonathan Hock to lead the charge.
Andre the Giant, who was born André Roussimoff, worked for WWE (then WWF) between 1973 and 1991, and was inducted into their Hall of Fame in 1993, before passing away that same year at the age of 46.
There’s currently no word on when the documentary will be released.
