Deadline.comreports that Batista will join Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kate Bosworth and Gina Carano in the upcoming Robert De Niro film called Bus 657. Principal photography is set to begin October 13 in Mobile, AL.

Below is an excerpt from the Deadline article that includes details on Batista's role:

The pic, formerly titled Bus 757, centers on a father (Morgan) without the means to pay for his daughter’s medical treatment. As a last resort, he partners with a greedy co-worker (Bautista) to rob a casino and the two hijack a bus full of hostages and things go awry. De Niro will play Frank “The Pope”, owner of the casino, and Bosworth plays his estranged daughter. Carano is a policewoman in pursuit of the hijacked bus.
