Lionsgate, WWE Re-Team For “Vendetta”

WWE Studios and Lionsgate have signed a new deal for a further six action films together, the first being the revenge thriller “Vendetta” which begins filming this summer.

Filmmaking twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska (“Dead Hooker In A Trunk,” “See No Evil 2”) will helm the film which stars WWE’s Big Show (Paul Wight) who was previously seen on screen in films like “MacGruber,” “The Waterboy” and “Knucklehead”.

Justin Shady penned the script which tracks a hard-nosed detective who deliberately commits a crime to get sent to prison. Once there he seeks vengeance on the crook serving a life sentence for murdering his wife.

The next film in the six-title deal begins in the Fall, though details are under wraps for now.
