On his verified Facebook page, Simmons stated earlier this week, “I just read that a man that I don’t know is writing my bio pic starring Pauly Shore. I do not approve this movie. I am in talks with major studios to create my own bio pic with some help. Wait for this movie.” He has previously made clear that he was not collaborating on the biopic and had not given Shore the “permission” to proceed, despite the project’s backing by the Wolper Organization.

Shore, on his Instagram, shared his frustration: “You guys, I was up all night crying regarding Richard Simmons’ tweet. Richard, how do you not approve of this movie? I mean, really, who’s better to play you in a movie than ME? Leonardo DiCaprio’s not gonna play you. Brad Pitt’s not gonna play you. I’m perfect. Everyone already thinks I’m you. We’re the same. Beautiful, inside and out. Hellll yea!”

He also suggested a personal meeting: “Richard, you haven’t even heard the pitch. Why don’t you simply let me come over to your house, bring you some warm matzo ball soup and a pastrami sandwich with dark mustard from Canters, rub your feet, and we can listen to the writer, Jordan Allen-Dutton, pitch you our idea? … Richard, you’re going to love our movie. We’re going to make the most beautiful cinematic masterpiece that’s going to honor you in a way that you’ll drop to your knees and cry with joy and happiness.”

Simmons acknowledged on social media his discussions with studios about producing a separate biopic about his life. In response, Shore commented, “I also heard the good news that you’re in talks with studios to do a biopic about yourself. That’s amazing! The more movies about you, the better! You deserve it. There should be hundreds made.”

Shore highlighted the prevalence of unauthorized biopics in his post, citing examples such as Elvis, Stephen Hawking, Marilyn Monroe, and Steve Jobs. He expressed confidence in his project: “Some of them turned out good, some of them turned out bad. Mine is going to turn out amaze-balls.”

When the project was announced in January, Shore did not claim Simmons’ involvement. Following Simmons’ voiced concerns, the filmmakers issued a statement: “While we would love to have him involved, we respect his desire to privacy and plan to produce a movie that honors him, celebrates him and tells a dramatic story. We know he is deeply private and we would never want to invade that, however he is an amazing person, that changed millions of peoples lives and the effect he has had on the world needs to be recognized.”
