Here’s what I’m betting happened... This producer agrees to help finance MALEVOLENCE, as long as Dolph agreed to doing a behind the scenes documentary concurrently. Sorta like JCVD’s BEHIND CLOSED DOORS from 11 years ago. Only MALEVOLENCE never materialized, so why do the documentary? Especially since there wasn’t much going in 2020... Hopefully this can get squared away quickly.

This associate "producer", Chee Keong Cheung, is one of the co-writers and they met through a common friend. D loved the MALEVOLENCE script, and they kept working on polishing the screenplay over the years that the project kept going "on" and "off"...

The documentary project came about in 2019 because of MALEVOLENCE was stalling (but not abandoned as it was still in the works as of summer 2020), and because Cheung had a good vision for it that D responded to. That's not the first documentary project that came about in the last 8 years...

But did they shoot footage for the documentary? And will it be released as a documentary? I mean, I would love to see this....

It said they did shoot more than 100 hours of footage. But my guess is that they will fall in limbo (or resurface on youtube one of these days).

As Moltisanti pointed out to me, with Dolph being so prevalent on social media, like Instagram, as well as his constant Cameo videos, is there much of a market and demand for these "behind the scenes" exposes? Seems passe at this point.

I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I think that the audience of such a documentary would be... mostly us fans, some nostalgic people and that's about it. Let's face it, Dolph is not Dwayne Johnson or Stallone, and it wouldn't interest that much people (but that's only my opinion)
