*WWE Studios has entered into a multi-picture deal with Wesley Snipes, and his Maandi Media DMM production company, to develop and produce elevated branded content.

The first deal under the new pact is “Temple,” starring Snipes along with Anne Heche, Dave Annable and WWE Superstar Seth Rollins, which is currently in production. The second picture under the deal is slated to begin filming later this year.

“The action genre has been a very big and important part of my career. There is no better way to extend my love for dynamic action based entertainment than with a company like WWE, who have been entertaining fans for decades with incredible visuals and deliciously entertaining storylines,” commented Snipes. “Maandi strives to create elevated multi-media content that appeals to all demographics worldwide – from childhood fan to feature film collaborators. Wow, sooo cool! We are all incredibly excited to share visions.”
