Billy Corgan hints a Broken Matt Hardy movie may be in the works

Matt Hardy on Twitter

TNA’s President (and possible future owner) Billy Corgan hasn’t been shy in taking partial credit for Impact Wrestling’s breakout segments with Matt Hardy’s Broken character, like “The Final Deletion” and its sequel, “Delete or Decay”.

In a new interview with ESPN, Corgan again discusses how he advocated for Hardy’s vision, and a move toward doing more on location filming, to company brass:

I have been pushing from the beginning that we needed to do what I call out-of-the-box and out-of-the-arena type segments. I really saw this as the future of wrestling on television.

The challenge now is in how to take it from something the Hardys can do and turn it into something bigger. Corgan, who the piece credits as a producer on the scenes from Matt’s Cameron, North Carolina compound, revealed a couple of ways TNA will be trying to do that.

One is essentially by using stuff with Matt as a jumping off point, creating “spin-offs” from the Broken-verse:

So maybe like super hero movies, we get the Hardys as the center of the universe and start to use them to sort of branch off in other directions.

Another - and this is where things get really crazy - is to produce a full-length movie featuring Broken Matt, Brother Nero and the whole platoon. Though he said he couldn’t provide details, he claimed a flick was “in the works”.

I hope they get Liam Neeson to play Skarsgård.

Billy says he knows they have “lightning in a bottle” with Hardy, he also admits there isn’t a set plan for how to capitalize.

We are making it up as we go along and that is sort of the fun part. It's really exciting because we are hopefully writing a sort of new golden dawn in terms of how wrestling can be presented on television, and I think that's fantastic.

What do you think? Would you watch 90 minutes of Broken Brilliance?
