Generation Iron producing documentary on the immensely popular weightlifting competition known as Strength Wars.
Generation Iron and The Vladar Company have officially announced production on a feature documentary for Strength Wars, which is based on the popular strength-based Youtube channel that boasts over 5 million regular viewers. The film will chronicle the lives of eight competitors as they prepare and train for the biggest Strength Wars competition yet – a tournament bracket to determine the ultimate champion and strongest man in the world.
Introduced in 2012, Strength Wars pits two muscle and strength athletes from different sports such as Bodybuilding, Powerlifting, Strongman, and Cross Fit against each other, by competing in a collection of strength exercises to determine an ultimate winner.
In January 2019, it was announced that Generation Iron Network had acquired the Strength Wars brand.
Directed by Vlad Yudin (Generation Iron series, The Hurt Business, Dorian Yates The Original Mass Monster) and produced by Edwin Mejia Jr., the film will feature an all-star cast including Larry Wheels, Anabolic Horse, Terron Beckham, Jerry Pritchett, Blaine Sumner, Big Neechi, and NDO Champ. The film will increase the stakes, transforming the 2v2 battles into an eight person tournament where only one can stand tall as champion.
The film is slated for a global release in 2020. The announcement comes after the recent release of Dorian Yates: The Original Mass Monster, which debuted number one on the iTunes Sports and Documentary charts.
“We’re very excited to bring the Strength Wars Brand to the United States.” Said director Vlad Yudin, “This film will do for strength sports what Generation Iron did for bodybuilding.”
The Strength Wars movie is set to release in 2020. For more information make sure to visit the Generation Iron official website.
