Take a long look, my friends.
This is Mr. Tony Hawk, the coolest skateboarder ever.

He's a total legend.
And after conquering the sports world, it seems he has his sights set elsewhere.
Because Hawk's next venture?
He has his sights set on the world of filmmaking!
We all remember Pro Skater, right?
GettyThe iconic game was basically the pinnacle of skate culture.
But even better than the game?
The fact that there's a movie based on the game!
The movie had been in the works for a long time.
Hawk started production on the movie back in 2016.
Curious about the title?
Well, it obviously comes from the iconic "Superman" tune by Goldfinger - a song any game player will remember.
It's produced by D'Amato Productions.
YouTubeThe company is run by Neversoft producer Ralph D'Amato.
And he seems to be the perfect choice for the role.
Because D'Amato produced every single one of the games in the series.
Swedish filmmaker Ludvig Gur has also worked on the movie.
YouTubeIt's based around not just the making of the game, but the entire growth of skating culture.
It features a ton of famous skating faces.
Including Chad Muska, Steve Caballero, and Eric Koston.
And it premiered on March 2nd 2020.With many of these skaters in attendance - including Hawk himself.
But now there's been even more exciting Tony Hawk news.
Because Hawk has had a totally adorable social media interaction this week.
He shared an Instagram video of himself completing his last ever ollie 540.
"Kinda sad. I'm like a little sad. I've never had much finality to anything but that was definitely the last one I'll ever do. F*** it. Happy I made it. Thanks guys for hanging in there with me."

We're not crying, you're crying.
