LOS ANGELES - FEBRUARY 14:  Actors Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson(L) and Vince Vaughn talk at the after party for the Premiere of MGM's

Vince Vaughn is about to step into the ring in an upcoming film involving Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. 

The film, titled "Fighting With My Family", is a dramedy written and directed by Stephen Merchant (The Office) that centers around the life of WWE superstar Paige. Johnson's Seven Bucks Productions is producing the film.

"He loved the script and sank his teeth into it embodying this character," Johnson wrote on his Instagram account. "He's playing a man who I know all too well and those of you who follow wrestling history know well too. The 80's wrestling star who squandered his money and opportunities because he didn't have the capacity to handle his fame. One bad decision after another, but these days he owns his past actions and does everything he can to give back to the wrestling business he loves. 

"Vince has been a buddy of mine for years and I'm fired up to see what he brings to this role. I grew up in and love this wild, crazy and unpredictable world of pro wrestling. Our little passion project is coming together nicely. "

The cast also includes Florence Pugh, Nick Frost and Lena Headey.
