July 29 Update
WWE Studios has acquired the rights to “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone,” a faith-based comedy movie that features Shawn Michaels.
Variety reported Wednesday that WWE Studios bought the movie, which wrapped production in the Chicago area last month under the umbrella of Vertical Church Films.
Brett Dalton, star of ABC’s “Agents of Shield,” plays the lead character. Michaels’s role has not been disclosed yet.
“It is a privilege to be working with the Harvest Bible Chapel and Vertical Church Films, as they share our understanding of the importance of a strong foundation for storytelling,” WWE Studios president Michael Luisi said. “‘The Resurrection of Gavin Stone’ is a heartwarming tale of faith and redemption that will allow us to continue growing our audience as we expand into new genres.”
