Fighting with My Family — Sneak Peek Clip


added: Tue, Apr 10th '18

Watch Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in full-on wrestler mode as he offers up some free advice to a couple of jabronies in an early sneak peek clip from the upcoming British wrestling comedy "Fighting with My Family."

Written and directed by English comedian Stephen Merchant (The Office, Hello Ladies), the upcoming film, which is executive produced by Dwayne Johnson along with Film4 and WWE Studios, is a semi-biographical and comedic depiction of the life story of WWE Superstar Paige.

Florence Pugh (star of the acclaimed period drama "Lady Macbeth") plays the younger, fictionalized version of Paige, an aspiring English wrestler raised in a blue-collar family of local wrestlers who sets out to become an international WWE superstar.

Jack Lowden (Dunkirk) co-stars as Paige's wrestler brother while comedian Nick Frost and "Game of Thrones" actress Lena Headey is cast as their parents.

Featuring guest appearances from "The Rock" as himself and Vince Vaughn as Jake "The Snake" Roberts, "Fighting with My Family" is due to hit theaters later in the year, sometime in September.

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.
