“We’ve been quietly working on this one for a few years,” Mark Duplass, producing alongside his brother Jay, told Variety. “We are floored with the unmitigated access Tony has allowed us to his life and his fascinating relationship to the sport.”
The film, currently untitled, will be directed by filmmaker and photographer Sam Jones and will follow Hawk’s life and career to date.
“I’ve been a skater my whole life, so this film is a passion project for me and I am excited to find a good home for it,” said Jones in a statement.
Tony Hawk, meanwhile, told the publication that filming has already been completed, with the project now in the post-production stages. “We have already shot everything for it, it’s just in the editing process,” he said. “I definitely wanted to give them as much footage and interview as possible.”
Reviewing PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, NME wrote in a four-star review: “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a magnificent remaster with a laser focus on all the right areas.
“It’s a game oozing with passion and care for a franchise that really deserves it after so many years of hurt, and I couldn’t be happier for the veteran fans who will find comfort in its carefully crafted systems and ever-exciting gameplay.”
