Today, WWE Studios officially announced a multi-picture deal with Wesley Snipes (Blade, Passenger 57) and his Maandi Media DMM production banner.
"We are always looking for the ideal talent to extend our brand and Wesley is the right combination of action movie star and savvy producer," said Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios. "We look forward to creating exciting new content with the perfect partner."
"The action genre has been a very big and important part of my career. There is no better way to extend my love for dynamic action based entertainment than with a company like WWE, who have been entertaining fans for decades with incredible visuals and deliciously entertaining storylines," commented Snipes. "Maandi strives to create elevated multi-media content that appeals to all demographics worldwide - from childhood fan to feature film collaborators. Wow, sooo cool! We are all incredibly excited to share visions."
The first picture under the partnership will be Temple, which was announced earlier this month and is currently in production. It will star Snipes, Anne Heche, Dave Annable and WWE Superstar Seth Rollins.
The second picture under the deal is expected to go into production later this year.
