The Iron Claw is a biographical sport film based on the true story of professional wrestler Kevin Von Erich and the Von Erich family. It was written and directed by Sean Durkin and produced by A24. The film stars Zac Efron, Jeremy Allen White, Harris Dickinson, Maura Tierney, Holt McCallany and Lily James.


The film is centred around the Von Erich family, a dynasty of wrestlers from the 1960s onwards that had enormous success, and popularized the iron claw professional wrestling hold. However, they not only had to battle inside the ring, but fight the "Von Erich curse" outside of it, which resulted in just one of the six brothers outliving their father.
