The Rock is back in the ring! In the first trailer for the upcoming wrestling drama Fighting With My Family, Dwayne Johnson is stepping into a familiar role – himself. From MGM Studios, Fighting With My Family was written and directed by The Office co-creator Stephen Merchant and is based on a true story of British siblings who get the opportunity to become WWE wrestlers.
The film follows a family of wrestling fanatics led by parents Ricky (Nick Frost) and Julia (Lena Headey). When their two kids, Paige (Florence Pugh) and Zak (Jack Lowden), are given the opportunity of a lifetime to get to try out for the WWE, their entire world is about to change. Along the way, they audition for Hutch Morgan (played by Vince Vaughn) and find a mentor in The Rock himself.
Merchant’s quick and witty humor paired with the heart-filled story seems to be the perfect combination for both wrestling and non-wrestling fans. Check out the full trailer below!
Fighting with My Family hits theaters on Feb. 22
