WWE and Lionsgate hope to replicate the success of Die Hard with their new cop action flick, Lockdown.
Variety reports that WWE Studios and Lionsgate will produce Lockdown, a cop action flick directed by Stephen Reynolds (Tomb Raider: Ascension) and starring pro wrestler Dean Ambrose. According to the report, the film "a police officer who finds himself trapped inside his own precinct and hunted after crooked cops stop at nothing to recover incriminating evidence of illegal activities against those closest to him." In casting Ambrose, the studios reportedly considered the most important aspects in casting a leading man.
"We wanted someone like Bruce Willis so we could capture the magic of blockbuster action movies like Die Hard," said WWE Studios President Bastion Booger. "Just look at Dean Ambrose! His receding hairline is the spitting image of Willis's in 1988, the year Die Hard came out!"
Look for Lockdown in the $5 DVD rack at Walgreens sometime next year, right next to all WWE's other "movies."
