Nasser Entertainment Group and Caliber Media Co. have wrapped principal photography on â€œDamage,â€ starring former wrestling superstar Stone Cold Steve Austin. The hard-edged, bare-knuckles fight film is directed by Jeff King and also stars Walton Goggins (”The Sheild”), Laura Vandervoort (”Smallville”) and Donnelly Rhodes (”Battlestar Gallactica”). A Domestic theatrical deal will be announced in the coming weeks.
Austin, NEG and Caliber have partnered again on another film entitled â€œThe Stranger,â€ which will begin shooting this summer in Vancouver. The project is described as a layered action picture in the vein of â€œThe Fugitiveâ€ and â€œThe Bourne Identityâ€ with production set to begin in late May 2009 with Rob Lieberman (Dexter, The Tortured) directing.
In addition to â€œDamage,â€ Austin will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania XV. He also recently joined the mega-cast of the Sylvester Stallone film â€œThe Expendablesâ€ alongside Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, and Jason Statham.
