HULK HOGAN'S DESTRUCTION OF GAWKER BEING DEVELOPED AS FILM OR LIMITED SERIES

By Mike Johnson on 2018-03-07 15:33:00

Deadline.com reported today that the demise of Gawker.com, which was brought on as a result of Hulk Hogan winning a civil lawsuit against the website for publishing and then refusing to remove video of a secretly shot sex tape featuring the former WWF champion and the wife of his then-best friend, Bubba the Love Sponge, is being developed by David A. Neuman’s Blackrock Productions as a feature film or limited series.

Blackrock Productions has acquired the recently published book  Conspiracy – Peter Thiel, Hulk Hogan, Gawker and the Anatomy of Intrigue, which reviews the series of events that led to the death of Gawker from the standpoint of Thiel, a silicon valley mogul, backing Hogan's lawsuit financially in order to push Gawker to the brink of financial ruin via the legal system.

Hogan won a $140 million judgment against Gawker in the civil case.
