Dwayne Johnson returns to the world of wrestling

Image The world of wrestling has given Hollywood a lot of colorful, strong actors. Fans of cinema probably know the names of such stars of this sport as Andre the Giant, Dave Batista, Jesse Ventura and Hulk Hogan. An extremely successful career in the world of big cinema was also built by Dwayne Johnson , who performed in the ring under the pseudonym The Rock . In recent years, the holder of several championship belts of the WWE wrestling federation not only successfully confirms the status of one of the highest grossing actors of our time, but also actively produces films through his studio Seven Bucks Productions .

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter , Johnson's company is starting work on the comedy Fighting with My Family , the main character of which will be the wrestling star Saraya- Jade Bevis nicknamed Paige . The idea to create a biopic came to Dwayne a few years ago, when he saw on TV a documentary about the life of the youngest female WWE champion in history.

Bevis was born in 1992 into a family of professional British wrestlers. Looking at the numerous injuries of her parents, the girl firmly decided to become a zoologist. However, after a couple of years, sporting roots still prevailed over the voice of reason. At thirteen, Saraya-Jade was already fighting on equal terms with boys of her own age, and by the age of 15 she was working part-time as a bouncer in a family bar. She managed to win her first champion title WWE at the age of 21.


The executives of Seven Bucks Productions have already found two key roles in the film. Florence Pugh (The Fall) will play Paige , and Jack Lowden (War and Peace) will play the athlete's brother. Dwayne Johnson himself intends to play one of the minor roles in the comedy.

The film will be produced, written and directed by the famous British comedian Stephen Merchant , who made friends with The Rock on the set of the family film Tooth Fairy.


The production team at Merchant is expected to begin work on the biopic Paige later this month.
