Earlier this week, we told you about Fighting With My Family, an upcoming film about the life of the family of WWE superstar Paige. Produced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and WWE Studios, the film tells the real life story of Paige's pro wrestling family, who are actually all professional wrestlers. Paige's father and mother wrestle under the names Ricky and Saraya Knight, and Paige (real name: Saraya-Jade) and her brothers Roy and Zak all began wrestling at a young age (13, 13, and 10, respectively). The movie will focus on Paige (played by Florence Pugh) and Zak (played by Jack Lowden) as they attempt to become WWE superstars (spoiler alert: we know how it works out). The movie will be written and directed by Stephen Merchant, based on a British documentary about the family, The Wrestlers: Fighting With My Family.

Now, The Rock has revealed more cast members on Twitter: Lena Headey and Rick Frost:

Will they be playing Paige's parents in the film? It seems like a good fit. Now, the question is, who will play Paige's boyfriend and true love, Alberto Del Rio?

Meanwhile, as reported by Bleeding Cool yesterday, Paige, who has been recovering from a neck injury, is expected back in the WWE ring in April or May.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
