Former Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre may not be fighting anymore, but now he is acting now. GSP will join one fight MMA fighter and current WWE Superstar Dave Bautista in a new film.
Brian O’Shea, CEO of The Exchange, has announced a deal to sell the big budget reboot of the 1989 film Kickboxer. They will begin selling the project at Cannes.
The film will star former UFC Champion Georges St-Pierre (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and WWE star Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy). The film will also be introducing Alain Moussi in the lead role. Moussi Mousse is a world-renowned stunt man/martial artist, with credits including X-Men: Days of Future Past, Immortals, Pacific Rim and White House Down.
Here is the description of the film:
David and Kurt Sloan are the descendants of a well-known Venice, California dynasty of champions. Both are top-notch fighters and athletes in the prime of their lives. When David wins the Karate World Championship, a promoter lures him to Hong Kong despite Kurt’s protests that the man is a crook. Not soon after, Kurt receives a letter from David and heads to Thailand to meet him. When he arrives, he discovers his brother is dead. The man responsible is the viscous Tong Po. Desperate to seek revenge, Kurt turns to Xian Chow, his brother’s former mentor. To defeat the man who killed his brother, Kurt must look within himself to find the strength and courage of a champion.
GSP has fought since UFC 167 against Johnny Hendricks, which he won, but soon after he retired from MMA.
WWE might want to pay attention to Batista a bit more, he likes being there, but does not have to be in WWE. I believe WWE needs him more than he needs them. More roles like this, WWE might want to be concerned.
