Though things have not gone her way lately, former Women’s Champion Natalya is one of the most respected veterans on the WWE roster currently. Her contributions in the development of the women’s wrestling industry have been commendable. Not only her, but the whole Hart family has helped the wrestling industry develop in every way possible. 

As per reports, there were discussions of possible movie being planned to honor the Hart family after the immense success of A24’s Iron Claw. In a recent appearance on the Lightweights podcast, Natalya revealed her dream cast for the reported movie. 

During her appearance, she revealed her admiration for Anyone But You star Sydney Sweeney. She wanted the Euphoria star to portray her in the movie. In addition to that, she also revealed that Emmy Award winner Paul Walter Hauser would be the perfect fit for the role of her father, Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart. 

“Well, it’s funny because like, I love Sydney Sweeney. So I’m like, ‘Sydney Sweeney should play Nattie.’ I think Sydney Sweeney should play me. I think she’s so talented. She’s so pretty. So like, I’m gonna go with somebody that’s really pretty…Paul Walter Hauser loves wrestling. He has so much respect for wrestling, but the more I look at old footage of my dad, the more that I’m like, ‘Oh my god, Paul would be a great Jim Neidhart. I’ve said this before, but I can’t unsee Paul as my dad, I think he would play such a great Jim Neidhart. When I start fantasy casting, I would cast Paul.”” 


Speaking of the other characters involved, Natalya revealed that the numerous members of her family opened different possibilities and roles if a potential movie was made, which made the Hart family special.
