About Being Evel

In the history of sports, few names are more recognizable than that of real life super hero, Evel Knievel. Produced by and starring Johnny Knoxville (and Tony Hawk, Mat Hoffman etc.), comes this film about Evel’s larger than life story of the boy from Butte, Montana. Long after the man hung up his famous white leather jumpsuit and rode his Harley into the sunset, his name is still synonymous with the death-defying lifestyle he led and as the creator of extreme sports. Notoriously brash, bold, and daring, Knievel stared death in the face from the seat of his motorcycle. Talk show legend Johnny Carson once referred to him as “The only man in history to get wealthy by trying to kill himself.”
