WWE Studios’ next film with the first ladies of horror, Jen and Sylvia Soska (See No Evil 2), is going to be Vendetta, starring WWE Superstar Paul “The Big Show” White, and it sounds like we’re in for one hell of a giant-sized bloodbath!
“We honestly couldn’t have finished Vendetta if there was just one of us,” Jen says of being able to have her sister assist her with directing. Given that they pretty much share the same mind, it allows our favorite twisted twins to divide and conquer.
Jen continues, “We were watching our editor’s edit of it, and there were scenes that I had never seen because we had different units and shot the movie and rejoined. We killed 47 people; it was insane.”
Yep, we are so fucking there.
The popular directing team of Jen and Sylvia Soska (SEE NO EVIL 2, AMERICAN MARY) return to the WWE Studios and Lionsgate fold to direct VENDETTA, the first installment of the “Action Six-Pack” series, which will feature WWE Superstar Big Show. Written by Justin Shady, VENDETTA centers on a hard-nosed detective who deliberately commits a crime to get thrown in prison, allowing him the chance to seek vengeance upon the criminal serving a life sentence for having brutally murdered the detective’s wife.
“This collection of six high octane films will not only excite our fans but provide a stage for emerging and talented filmmakers like the Soska Sisters,” said Michael Luisi, WWE Studios President, when announcing the film. He added, “We couldn’t have a better partner in this enterprise than Steve Beeks and the team at Lionsgate, who have been great teammates and are proven distributors of this genre.”
WWE Studios and Lionsgate previously collaborated on THE CONDEMNED and SEE NO EVIL, as well as the upcoming 2014 releases LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS and SEE NO EVIL 2. Bradley Buchanan, SVP of Business Affairs, negotiated the deal on behalf of WWE Studios, and Wendy Jaffe negotiated the deal on behalf of Lionsgate.
