Speaking through his official Instagram account, former WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced that Vince Vaughn has been added to the cast of the “Fighting With My Family” movie regarding WWE women’s wrestler Paige and her family.
The Rock’s Seven Bucks Productions, as well as WWE Studios, Film4 and Misher Films are jointly working on the movie which will be directed by Stephen Merchant.
Our @sevenbucksprod is excited to welcome Vince Vaughn to our #FightingWithMyFamily cast. He loved the script and sank his teeth into it embodying this character. He's playing a man who I know all too well and those of you who follow wrestling history know well too. The 80's wrestling star who squandered his money and opportunities because he didn't have the capacity to handle his fame. One bad decision after another, but these days he owns his past actions and does everything he can to give back to the wrestling business he loves. Vince has been a buddy of mine for years and I'm fired up to see what he brings to this role. I grew up in and love this wild, crazy and unpredictable world of pro wrestling. Our little passion project is coming together nicely. More casting news to come. Production starts tomorrow. Let's shoot! #FightingWithMyFamily #VinceVaughn #SevenBucksProds #MisherFilms #Film4 #WWEFilms #SquaredCircleDNA
