WWE, Lionsgate renew partnership with six-film deal; Big Show movie announced

Gallo Images

As first reported by, WWE Studios and Lionsgate have reached a new agreement to remain partners with a six-film contract. Those six films will be action movies, and the first will be a flick entitled Vendetta, directed by the same duo behind See No Evil 2.

Here's a brief synopsis:

Vendetta, written by Justin Shady, tracks a hard-nosed detective who deliberately commits a crime to get sent to prison, where he seeks vengeance on the crook serving a life sentence for murdering the detective's wife.

The movie will star Big Show, who will be heading back to the big screen for the first time since Knucklehead bombed back in Oct. 2010. At least this time he's got better material to work with and he won't be asked to parade around in his underwear while being made to look like a silly giant.

Doesn't he do that enough on WWE television?

No word yet on when filming will take place but Big Show hasn't had a creative direction in WWE for a while now, so his absence will hardly be noticed.

Excited for this, Cagesiders?
