Seven Bucks Productions announced that they will executive produce “The Untitled Phil Heath Story,” a documentary film that will unveil the extraordinary life story of seven-time Mr. Olympia, Phil Heath, as he rises through the ranks, battles the scrutiny of the media, and takes on bodybuilding’s scariest foes. All while standing on the brink of becoming the greatest Mr. Olympia champion to walk the earth.

Written and directed by award-winning Canadian filmmaker Brett Harvey (Inmate # 1: The Rise of Danny Trejo, Ice Guardians) the film chronicles Heath’s extraordinary comeback journey as he battles his way back to the 2020 Olympia stage after a two year hiatus, in an attempt to reclaim his throne and cement his legacy among bodybuilding’s all-time greats. Heath, who claimed the title of Mr. Olympia every year from 2011 to 2017, is now plagued by injuries that come with 18 years of physical and mental sacrifice. Adding to the challenge of his comeback is COVID-19 and its looming implications on his training schedule and the Olympia event itself, presenting an entirely new dynamic to the hill that Heath must climb, as he once again stands on the edge of bodybuilding history.

“As a fellow bodybuilder, I am endlessly in awe of Phil’s abilities and unprecedented career,” said Executive Producer Dany Garcia. “Not only is his physique iconic but his work ethic, mental persistence and relentless commitment are simply unmatched in the sport. I am excited to be collaborating with Phil, alongside our partners, to tell his story with conviction as well as to bring an authentic glimpse into his world as he cements his legacy.”

“Phil is one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time and when it’s all said and done, he could become the greatest to ever step on stage,” said Executive Producer Dwayne Johnson. “For good reasons, his nickname is “The Gift” and his bodybuilding surname is “the Dream Killer”. This is going to be fun to produce. I can’t wait.”

“I’m thrilled to partner with Brett Harvey and the Seven Bucks Productions team whose creative minds and trust make them the ideal partners to finally share my story with the world. I look forward to offering unprecedented access as I compete in yet another Mr. Olympia and using this opportunity for self-expression and honesty to allow my fans around the world to finally understand who I really am,” said Phil Heath.

“It’s a rare opportunity to step inside the personal voyage of an elite athlete who has been as dominant as Phil Heath,” said Brett Harvey. “Even more rare is the ability to do so while he battles back from injuries and attempts to alter the course of bodybuilding history within the landscape of a world pandemic. I’m intrigued to be joining Phil’s fascinating journey.”

Johnson and Garcia will executive produce the film on behalf of Seven Bucks Productions alongside Adam Scorgie for Score G Productions and Super Channel, and Phil Heath. Seven Bucks Productions’ Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz and Kevin Hill will also serve as executive producers, along with Erin Lardy and Nikki Cuff on behalf of The Garcia Companies. Stephen Green will edit.

Shawn Rhoden wins Mr. Olympia!

Shawn Rhoden wasn't on the radar of many to win the 2018 Mr. Olympia due to his backsliding to a 5th place finish in 2017, his inability to compete at the 2018 Arnold Classic due to illness, and his lack of progress pictures and videos on social media. There was an assumption made that the Jamaican wasn't in peak shape. That assumption was proven wrong as Flexatron won the 2018 Mr. Olympia triumphing over 7X champ Phil Heath.

Rhoden earned a $675,000 payout, the largest in the history of the Mr. Olympia competition.

At 43 years old he ties the record for oldest bodybuilder to win the Olympia with Chis Dickerson.

The top 5 finishers were:

1. Shawn Rhoden.

2. Phil Heath.

3. Roelly Winklaar.

4. William Bonac.

5. Brandon Curry.

Phil Heath wins his 7th consecutive Mr Olympia!

Love him or hate him, the king stays on top. Phil Heath has won the 2017 Mr. Olympia making this his 7th consecutive Mr. Olympia contest. Heath is now tied with bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger for second most Mr O victories. While many question Heath's gut and feel he was not in his best shape the judges felt that he did just enough to edge out Big Ramy. The question now becomes can he catch Ronnie Coleman and Lee Haney who both won eight consecutive Mr. O victories and maybe eventually pass them or will Big Ramy finally live up to the hype and beat him next year.

But that's a story for next year.

Congrats to Phil Heath the 2017 Mr. Olympia winner!

Video: Phil Heath wins 6th consecutive Mr. Olympia

Sorry Phil Heath haters but the champ is still here!

Phil Heath fended off a group of great challengers to claim his sixth consecutive Mr. Olympia contest. In my opinion Heath came in in better shape than both 2014 and 2015, and maybe his best shape ever. The champ needed to be dialed in as competitors such as Shawn Rhoden and Dexter Jackson came in fully ready to challenge the champ.

Heath is now tied with Dorian Yates after winning his sixth Sandow.

Here are the top five finishers

5th William Bonac

4th Mamdouh Elssbiay (Big Ramy)

3rd Dexter Jackson

2nd Shawn Rhoden

Phil Heath wins 5th consecutive Mr. Olympia

You can now call Phil Heath the 5X Mr. Olympia champion. He captured his fifth Sandow by beating out Dexter Jackson at the 2015 Mr. Olympia. I know the Cry Greene, oops I mean Kai Greene fans will say it doesn't count because Kai wasn't there and start with the insults. Just remember though, whatever you say it has to start with 5X Mr. olympia. Check out an interview with the champ below.
