– This Friday night in Los Angeles, WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s new DVD/Blu-Ray action movie, “The Package” will have a special screening at the Laemmle’s NoHo 7 Theaters. After the 7pm screening, Austin will host a Q&A session with fans in attendance. Here’s the movie synopsis, from a press release sent out today:
Austin plays Tommy Wick, a nightclub bouncer and enforcer for Seattle crime boss Big Doug (Eric Keenleyside, Dreamcatcher, Firewall). When Big Doug instructs Tommy to hand-deliver a secret package to the mysterious international crime lord “The German,” (Lundgren), he does so with the hopes that Big Doug will forgive the debt Tommy’s brother Eddie (Lochlyn Munro, White Chicks, Freddy vs. Jason) owes. Facing incredible odds, Tommy races against the ticking clock – and a small army of hit men, mercenaries, assassins and sadists — to complete delivery.
