According to Deadline, former WWE Champion Dave Bautista is in negotiations with Netflix to star in TAG’s Jeff Tomsic film “Unleashed.”

Along with Chris Bender and Jake Weiner from the movie Good Fear, Bautista would also produce the movie with his partner Jonathan Meisner. Jim and Brian Kehoe, the “Blockers,” are penning the script.

Furthermore, Bautista is presently filming for Dune 2, according to the article.

Next month at TIFF, Bautista’s “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” will have its premiere before going live on Netflix. He recently finished shooting the M. Night Shyamalan picture Knock at the Cabin.
