Seven Bucks Productions Teaming Up With Writer Stephen Merchant For New Movie Based On WWE’s Paige & Her Family

The Rock’s production company, Seven Bucks Productions, are working on a comedic drama based on WWE Superstar Paige, and her family. Johnson will be working alongside Comedian Stephen Merchant who is on board as writer, director and executive producer.

The movie will be loosely based on British documentary The Wrestlers: Fighting With My Family, a film which was made before Paige – real name Saraya Bevis – found her fame with World Wrestling Entertainment.

The new flick, co-produced by WWE Studios and Film 4 will see Florence Pugh playing Saraya, Jack Lowden as brother Zak, Nick Frost as father Ricky Knight, and Lena Headey as Julia, Saraya’s mother. Johnson will also star in the film, although as to what capacity is not yet known.

“Not only was I intrigued by this loving and wild family, but I also felt itโ€™s the kind of narrative that would make an amazing movie,” Johnson said of the project.

There’s been no release date announced, but Fighting With My Family is expected to enter production this month.
