    WWE WWE Studios partnering with Netflix for original films

    WWE Studios are beginning develop new feature films in conjunction with Netflix, with plans to release them via the streaming service, PWInsider.com can exclusively confirm.

    The WWE Studios-Netflix projects will be directed towards family audiences, with the first film, The Main Event, currently preparing to film this summer.

    The Main Event tells the story of a ten-year old boy who is bullied but dreams of growing up to become a WWE professional wrestler. However, he gets to live his dream earlier when he discovers the secret to having super-strength in his breakfast cereal, becoming "The Spaghetti Kid." We are told that John Cena is referenced in the film and has a cameo role late in the current version of the script. The current version of the screenplay also features small roles for Sheamus, The Miz and Bray Wyatt, with a number of references to WWE NXT as well.

    The Main Event is at the start of their casting and crew staffing process. There is no word yet where the film will shoot.

    The screenplay was written by Larry Postel, who has another film, Flip Turn, currently filming.

    Maybe they can bring in Christopher Daniels and have The Spaghetti Kid tag up with Curry Man for that real international flavour.
