WWE Studios and Lionsgate extend partnership for six more movies

WWE Studios and Lionsgate today announced an extension to their partnership which will include six new action films involving WWE Superstars.

The first movie announced is titled Vendetta, starring The Big Show in a movie directed by Jen and Sylvia Soska, the twins behind See No Evil 2. It will start production in the Summer.

Written by Justin Shady, Vendetta centers on a hard-nosed detective who deliberately commits a crime to get thrown in prison, allowing him the chance to seek vengeance upon the criminal serving a life sentence for having brutally murdered the detective’s wife.

“This collection of six high octane films will not only excite our fans, but provide a stage for emerging and talented filmmakers like the Soska Sisters,” said Michael Luisi, WWE Studios President. “We couldn’t have a better partner in this enterprise than Steve Beeks and the team at Lionsgate, who have been great teammates and are proven distributors of this genre.”

Lionsgate Co-Chief Operating Officer and Motion Picture Group President Steve Beeks said that the movie studio is thrilled to join forces with WWE again on these “modestly-budgeted” action films.

“We have a strong track record in this genre, and we’re delighted to team with the WWE juggernaut to deliver action-packed event films that will resonate with their global fan base and beyond.”
