More Names Added to The Rock's Movie About Paige - 'Fighting With My Family'
The Pro Wrestling Sheet has exclusively revealed that two new names have joined the cast of Fighting With My Family, the new movie currently being produced by The Rock about WWE Diva Paige's life.
Sources close to the situation informed the Pro Wrestling Sheet that Tessa Blanchard and Thea Trinidad are currently in Los Angeles working on the movie, but as of writing it remains unclear whether they will work behind the scenes or appear on camera. Both Trinidad and Blanchard have previously appeared on WWE TV.
Game of Thrones star Lena Headey is reported to have signed on to portray Paige's mother, with Nick Frost (of Hot Fuzz fame) set to play her father.
Deadline released the movie synopsis which reveals the following; “The film follows the story of reformed gangster and former wrestler Ricky, his wife Julia, daughter Saraya and son Zak, who make a living performing in tiny venues across the country.”
“Ricky and Julia want a better life for their children, and when brother and sister get the chance to audition for the WWE, it seems the family dream is coming true and all their troubles will be solved. However, Saraya and Zak are about to learn that becoming a WWE superstar demands more than they ever imagined possible as athletes and siblings.”
What Culture Pro Wrestling and Wrestle Circus both confirmed that Tessa Blanchard had to pull out of prior commitments due to "and exciting project", with the Pro Wrestling Sheet being informed it related to the movie.
