The Rock Comments On 'Fighting With My Family'

The Rock's Seven Bucks Productions and WWE Studios have joined together to create a movie based on Paige and her family, called "Fighting with My Family."

Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) and Nick Frost are confirmed cast members and The Rock will appear in the film as well. It's a $17.5 million deal for the worlwide rights secured by MGM. Rock posted this about it on Instagram:

"Crazy that this passion project I'm producing started years ago when I was in London filming and couldn't sleep (clearly I didn't have my tequila) so at 3am I turn the TV on in my hotel suite and watch a documentary on a UK channel about a local wrestling family. The doc was intriguing, unpredictable and heartfelt. I had a hunch the narrative would make an interesting movie.

And here we are starting production this week and fortunate enough to sign this kind of deal - I couldn't be happier for everyone who's worked so hard bringing this passion project to life.
Special shout out to our new partners Gary Barber and Jonathan Glickman of MGM who came in strong and believed so passionately in this unique project. Thank you boys! Let's shoot.

  • Good for Rocky. I hope they don’t make this movie too glossy, and really stick to the facts, but in reality it’s going to be a solid budget movie, so I have to hold my excitement and worry until it comes out and we can see for ourselves. Mostly I’m hoping Paige pulls her head out of her ass and gets away from ADR, but as everyone knows, I’ve never been an ADR fan.
