Dwayne Johnson announced today in a post on Instagram that Vince Vaughn has been cast in the upcoming Fighting With My Family movie, based on the family of WWE Superstar Paige.
“He’s playing a man who I know all too well and those of you who follow wrestling history know well too. The 80’s wrestling star who squandered his money and opportunities because he didn’t have the capacity to handle his fame. One bad decision after another, but these days he owns his past actions and does everything he can to give back to the wrestling business he loves,” Johnson wrote about Vaughn’s character.
Johnson added that production on the movie starts tomorrow. Seven Bucks Productions, Misher Films, WWE Studios and Film4 are jointly working on this movie which is directed by Stephen Merchant.
