TMZ has posted a story correcting an earlier report that Hollywood actor Liev Schreiber was set to play Chris Benoit in the upcoming biopic on the former WWE Superstar's life and tragic end. According to the report, Schreiber's reps say the X-Men star is not on board with the film, currently listed as in pre-production. 

The film is based on Matthew Randazzo's biography Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit & The Fall of The Pro Wrestling Industry. It is being directed by foreign film maker Vicente Amorim, and at this time does not have a release date.
