Kaleidoscope Film Distribution, based in the United Kingdom, has officially announced its next documentary, “Owen.”
The Owen Hart Foundation, a charity in Owen’s honor ran by his widow Martha, announced its backing of the project in 2018, and you can follow the project’s Twitter here. Likely to be released in the first quarter of 2021, its executive producers are Kaleidoscope’s Lee Brazier, CEO Spencer Pollard and Martha Hart. It will feature new and exclusive interviews from family and friends, including Bret Hart.
Owen Hart has recently been back in the news following Vice’s Dark Side of the Ring coverage on him, which was the highest rated program in the series up to now. For the first time in 20 years, Owen has official merchandise available on PWTees.
Owen wrestled across the globe in Europe, Canada, Japan, and other places but his main exposure came in the states in the late ’80s as the Blue Blazer and then from 1993-1999 as Owen Hart in the WWF. One of the greatest in ring performers of all-time, he is a multi-Intercontinental Champion, Tag Champion and a former European Champion. In late 1999, he was forced to do a stunt as the Blue Blazer, and the carelessness of both the WWF and its rigging crew led to Owen falling to his death. The event then continued and WWE has been in a legal battle with his wife ever since.
PSE will keep you updated on the project as more information becomes avaiable.
