The Rock Stars As The Rock In New Trailer For 'Fighting With My Family'
Can you smellllllllllll what The Rock is producing?
It's not something you hear every time you talk about professional wrestling, but this one is based on REAL events (heh heh).
Based on the true story of WWE's Paige -- real name Saraya-Jade Bevis -- Fighting With My Family follows her journey from wrestling with her brother in the UK to her start with the global wrestling empire.
Starring Florence Pugh as Paige, the film was written and directed by Stephen Merchant and has the backing of executive producer Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Johnson is also lending his considerable acting talents to play ... himself.
Paige comes from a rich wrestling family who were the subjects of a Channel 4 doco also called The Wrestlers: Fighting with my Family. Johnson tweeted that, after seeing the doc he became infatuated with the story of Paige's rise to wrestling notoriety.
The now-retired Paige also tweeted the trailer, saying it made her cry her eyes out at LAX.
Fighting with my Family also stars Nick Frost, Jack Lowden and Vince Vaughn and will slide into the ring cinemas in 2019.
