Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

The tall tales and colos­sal ca­reer of An­dre the Gi­ant will be told in an up­com­ing HBO doc­u­men­tary. WWE, HBO Sports and the Bill Sim­mons Me­dia Group will pro­duce “An­dre The Gi­ant,” a doc­u­men­tary film ex­am­in­ing the life and ca­reer of one of pro­fes­sional wrestling’s truly big­gest stars. An­dre Rene Rous­si­moff, a na­tive of France, was a pop­u­lar tour­ing at­trac­tion for years in wrestling and head­lined the third WrestleMa­nia in 1987 against Hulk Ho­gan. The wide-rang­ing doc­u­men­tary will ex­plore An­dre’s up­bring­ing in France, his cel­e­brated ca­reer in WWE and his for­ays in the entertainment world that in­cluded a role in “The Princess Bride.” HBO did not an­nounce an air date for the film.
