New WWE/John Cena Film Underway; Details, Info On Plot & Genre



The following is an excerpt from a new article on the Gov Monitor website:

WWE Studios’ action-adventure stars Superstar John Cena®, Ethan Embry, Michael Rispoli, Boyd Holbrook and Amy Smart.

Governor Bill Richardson and WWE® today announced that WWE Studios’ production of Blood Brothers has begun principal photography in Albuquerque.

The production is expected to hire approximately 140 New Mexicans for the cast and crew.

“WWE® is a global brand that has a tremendous following and I am excited the production is filming in New Mexico,” said Governor Richardson. “These kinds of projects help promote the state’s film industry and continue to provide good, high-wage jobs for New Mexicans.”

WWE Studios executive vice president Michael Pavone (That’s What I Am) will direct Blood Brothers from his original screenplay.

In the film, the Cleary brothers, Sam (JOHN CENA), Leo (ETHAN EMBRY) and Douglas (BOYD HOLBROOK) take dysfunctional families to a new level: Sam and Leo have grown up hating each other and neither likes their juvenile delinquent kid brother, Douglas, to whom they’ve only recently been introduced.

The sons share the same father, a womanizing drunk, but all have different mothers. Their father died a rich man and when they’re brought together by their sister Nina (AMY SMART) to learn which of them will inherit the old man’s fortune, they are handed an unpleasant surprise.

A requirement of the will is that the three estranged siblings go into business together. Their first job is to bring in a parole violator, who has left Leo, a bail bondsman, with a $250,000 debt.

Their search will take them into the mountains of Mexico where they encounter a drug lord and uncover a kidnapping plot, masterminded by an embittered entrepreneur (MICHAEL RISPOLI) that will endanger them all.
