Bill Simmons is heading back to familiar territory.

Three months after HBO announced it would be yanking his talk show Any Given Wednesday, the premium cable network is revealing at least one piece of Simmons' next act: a feature-length documentary about the life and career of WWE legend Andre the Giant.
