WWE and Netflix team up for The Main Event movie

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Netflix have teamed together for a new movie called The Main Event. The film is based on an original screenplay by Larry Postel and will be directed by Jay Karas (Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife, Break Point, Parks & Recreation).

The film will follow an 11-year-old aspiring wrestler, who after discovering a magical mask, enters a competition to become the next WWE Superstar. It will star Seth Carr (Black Panther), Tichina Arnold (The Neighborhood, Everybody Hates Chris), Ken Marino (The Other Two, Black Monday, Bad Milo), and Adam Pally (Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, The Mindy Project) alongside current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Kofi Kingston and fellow WWE superstars The Miz and Sheamus. Other WWE superstars will also make cameos.

Production is currently underway in Vancouver and the film is expected to premiere on Netflix in 2020.

The Main Event joins a growing slate of live action movies featuring kids and teens and made for families, which includes the upcoming comedy Tall GirlA Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting, and Hello, Universe, based on Erin Entrada Kelly’s Newbery Award-winning, New York Times bestselling novel.

WWE Studios is WWE’s multi-platform content division that develops and produces scripted and non-scripted series, documentaries and feature films. Recent projects include Andre the Giant, the Emmy-nominated documentary in partnership with HBO, as well as hit shows Total Divas and Total Bellas on E! and Miz & Mrs. on USA. WWE Studios also recently produced the feature film Fighting with My Family in association with MGM and Seven Bucks Productions.
