There's an interesting new movie in development called Bigger
, which tells the story of Joe and Ben Weider
, who are the founders of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding contest. As you'd imagine, Arnold Schwarzenegger
will be a big part of that story since he was a part of all around the time when it first started in 1965.
The brothers, who co-founded the International Federation of Bodybuidling, discovered Schwarzenegger and encouraged him to come to the U.S. Prior to being a blockbuster action star and Governor of California, Schwarzenegger was a seven-time Mr. Olympia-title holder. Back in 1972, the Weider brothers sold a nutritional supplement, Weider Formula No. 7, that featured a young Arnold Schwarzenegger
on the label.
Director George Gallo
has cast the man who will play Arnold Schwarzenegger
in the movie and that man is Calum Von Moger
, who is 2014's Mr. Universe
champion. He will join the previously cast Tyler Hoechlin
