Aside from The Rock™, Roddy Piper and… Tiny Lister, not a lot of guys have successfully shifted between
professional wrestling “sports entertainment” and feature films.
Yet another actor-athlete bounding from the homoerotic faux-violence of the ring into the turnbuckle of your local theater is “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who typically demands at least one “Hell yeah”.
The movie, distributed by Lionsgate, will be directed by Scott Wiper (who last helmed and starred in the decent crappy action flick A Better Way to Die) from his own rewrite. WWE has another pair of movies on the way featuring their superstars, the horror flick See No Evil with Voorhees-esque wrestler Kane, and the actioner The Marine, starring grappler John Cena and Nip/Tuck cupcake Kelly Carlson, both due in theaters this year.
