The film is inspired by Lambent’s documentary THE WRESTLERS: FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY will be written and directed by Stephen Merchant (The Office, Hello Ladies).
Seven Bucks Productions, Misher Films, WWE Studios, and Film4 are all teaming up to produce the upcoming feature film, Fighting With My Family a comedy-drama written and directed by Stephen Merchant, based on the true personal story of WWE Superstar Paige and her family of professional wrestlers.
“Back in 2012, I was in my hotel room in London and stumbled across a documentary on a local UK channel. Not only was I intrigued by this loving and wild family, but I also felt it’s the kind of narrative that would make an amazing movie,” shared Johnson. “The Knights’ journey is a universal one that all families are familiar with. I relate to Saraya (Paige) and her wrestling family on such a personal level and it means so much that I can help tell their story.” Dwane (The Rock) Johnson.
