WWE Studios’ “Fighting with My Family” is an upcoming comedy-drama film written and directed by Stephen Merchant, featuring executive producer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, along with a star-studded cast including Vince Vaughn, Florence Pugh, Jack Lowden, Lena Headey and Nick Frost.
The film is inspired by the Channel 4 British documentary “The Wrestlers: Fighting with My Family” and tells 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 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. Wrestling has always kept this family together —but now it could tear them apart.
“Fighting with My Family” will premiere at Sundance Film Festival and hit theaters in New York and Los Angeles Thursday, Feb. 14, and nationwide Friday, Feb. 22.
