Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned the new movie being made about Paige’s life called Fighting With My Family has two new employees working on the film … and they’ve both been on NXT TV.
Sources tell us Tessa Blanchard and Thea Trinidad are currently in L.A. working on the flick — but right now it’s unclear if they’re merely in behind the scenes roles or appearing on camera as well.
As we previously reported, Game of Thrones star Lena Headey has been cast in the role of Paige’s mom. Nick Frost from Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead will be playing her father.
Deadline released a synopsis for the flick that says, “The film follows the story of reformed gangster and former wrestler Ricky, his wife Julia, daughter Saraya and son Zak, who make a living performing in tiny venues across the country.”
“Ricky and Julia want a better life for their children, and when brother and sister get the chance to audition for the WWE, it seems the family dream is coming true and all their troubles will be solved. However, Saraya and Zak are about to learn that becoming a WWE superstar demands more than they ever imagined possible as athletes and siblings.”
What Culture Pro Wrestling and Wrestle Circus both announced this weekend that Tessa had to pull out of their events and the latter said it was due to an “exciting new project.”
We’re told this is what they were talking about.
