Project Casting

Foxcatcher wrestler, Mark Schultz really hates director Bennett Miller after implying he was gay.

Foxcatcher is currently in talks to being an Academy Award winning movie. The movie centers around John du Pont (Steve Carell) who invites Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) to move to his estate and help form a wrestling team for the 1988 Olympics, Mark sees a way to step out of the shadow of his charismatic brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo).However, du Pont begins to lead Mark down a dark road, causing the athlete’s self-esteem to slip. Meanwhile, du Pont becomes fixated on bringing Dave into the fold, eventually propelling all three toward an unforeseen tragedy.

Promotion for the movie started out innocently enough, Mark Schultz parised the movie upon its release giving positive comments about the film even calling Bennett Miller “a great director.”

Then something changed…

His biggest concern is that he feels the movie implied he and John du Pont had a sexual relationship.

It is going to be an awkward award season to say the least. But, here’s the trailer. What do you think?
